It sounds like you're doing it right, so the only theory I can come up 
with right now is that you're editing a different oinkmaster.conf than the 
one Oinkmaster is using (/usr/local/etc/oinkmaster.conf by default in 
0.8, which you can override with -C <file>). Maybe you edited the one in 
the current directory instead?

If this isn't it, I'd suggest that you run in verbose mode (-v) to have 
Oinkmaster tell you which rules it modifies and see if it mentions SID 
485. Maybe you could also upgrade to Oinkmaster 0.9 which is even more 
noisy/helpful in verbose mode.
