checksums misfiring

I'm having trouble with type=checksum copy:'s sporadically firing when they shouldn't be. I'm using 2.1.0p1. Before I dig into the code, has anyone else seen this? It happens on the UNIX platforms I'm supporting and does not seem to be limited to any particular set of hosts or times of day.

Here's one specific example. One of my Cfengine clients sends me this:

cfengine:jf22grid02: Image file /etc/securetty has a wrong MD5 checksum (should be copy of /var/cfengine/cvsexport/etc/securetty)

So I look at its /etc/securetty and see:

address@hidden etc]# ls -l securetty
-r--r--r--    1 root     root          114 Jun 13  2001 securetty
address@hidden etc]# openssl md5 securetty
MD5(securetty)= 9a3f3c442ed66695529e5e72c1a9bbe5

And there's no old version in its /var/cfengine/repository/. The securetty on the Cfengine server looks like:

address@hidden etc]# ls -l securetty
-rw-r--r--    1 root     rpc           114 Dec  9 09:21 securetty
address@hidden etc]# openssl md5 securetty
MD5(securetty)= 9a3f3c442ed66695529e5e72c1a9bbe5

Same checksum. Different time-stamps, but that shouldn't matter because I'm using type=checksum. I have ChecksumUpdates = ( on ) and ChecksumDatabase = ( /var/cfengine/cfdb ) for client and server. Ummm... Oh! Do I need separate database files for the client and server checksum databases? Because the server machine is also a client. I'll try separating them.

Anyway, if you've run into this problem I'd like to hear from you. Thanks!
