I take it all back!  The problem is in my system that retrieves the
rules.  It was detecting that the file had changed and was retrieving it
then silently dying before updating the running rule set. It left things
in a state that thoroughly confused me and confounded my attempts to
check what was happening.

My apologies for the confusion and my thanks to those who pointed out
that they were getting updated files without problems.
