I hadn't thought about what would happen if splaytime were specified in
both locations, and didn't mean to indicate this is necessary or

We used to put it in cfagent.conf, and I was puzzled why every client
was connecting to the server at the top of the hour, until this was
explained here on this list before.  

I should have said "if the splaytime is specified ONLY in cfagent.conf",
then it might explain the apparent 'hanging' that Yaroslav is seeing,
because the actions in update.conf won't be delayed.

Thanks for clarifying.
