Downstream grid-mapfile read only once?

In GT 4.0.5 etc/globus_wsrf_mds_index/server-config.wsdd the TeraGrid
has a securityDescriptor that is configured to use a gridmap file to authorize
upstream registrations. This gridmap file appears to be only read once (either
at startup or first use) and not subsequently. The mapfile should be read each

service down whenever we change the authorization gridmap.
This is how WS GRAM handles it, for example.
I can't reproduce this locally, but I suspect that what is going on is that the
gridmap refresh code isn't interacting well with something on the affected
Actually, apparently it's working now. Never mind...
