So when you update the server's configuration, the processing goes  
something like this:

1. Write new configuration to a temporary configuration file (i.e.  
2. Move current configuration file to the backup file (equivalent to  
'rm config.bak ; mv config.xml config.bak'
3. Rename the temporary configuration file to be the configuration  
file (i.e. 'mv config.working config.xml')

It sounds like a problem occurred between steps 2 and 3. If step 3  
failed, you should have seen some dire warning:

EXTREMELY CRITICAL!  Unable to move manageable attributes working file  
to proper file name!  Configuration will revert to defaults unless  
this is manually corrected!  (could not rename var/config/ 
config.working to var/config/config.xml)

A little misleading, since you won't revert to defaults (as you  
discovered ;-)

If you have any ideas on what might have gone wrong, let us know.
