Problem description

YaST2 Online Update on SLES8 ignores the comment sign in the configuration
file /etc/sysconfig/online_update. If you for example copy a line for future
reference, insert a # at the beginning of the line and then change the
copy, the changes will not apply since the value is taken from the commented
out line.
