If you are using the RedHat-supplied /etc/rc.d/init.d/ciped script
to start up, note that it pulls all the variables except the key from
the /etc/sysconfig/cipe file and puts them on the command line
which will override anything in /etc/cipe/options. So far I
haven't found any documention or mention of a GUI config utility
that might explain the reason for this.
