Yes, I've noticed this myself with the editfiles action, that
multiline edits can be difficult but I though I'd read that this was
to be fixed for v2 ?

Anyway, another hack (!) to sort this (untested) :-

   { /etc/inet/inetd.conf
     SetScript "/bin/sh -c perl -0777 -e '$_ = <STDIN>; s/(#.*\n)*support 
stream.*\n//; print' < tt"
     RunScriptIfLineMatching "gnatsd"

or something along those lines.

One possibly way to solve this in cfengine would be a way to specify
the newline as one can with perl, then any regexps could be made to
work on several lines at a time, e.g. :-

    NewLine 0777
    ReplaceAll "(#.*\n)*support stream.*\n" With ""

(Perhaps this works already ?)
