Hmm, a wart indeed.  It should be easy to work around by adding a
nonsense entry before the one
to be legitimately purged, if that's considered best practice.

But I am trying to fix a master+slave case where the wrong SOA is
answered immediately
after an update, and I followed this example to purge the cache:

i=cmdomains.begin();i!=cmdomains.end();++i) {
    extern PacketCache PC;
    vector<string> topurge;
    PC.purge(topurge); // fixes cvstrac ticket #30

In this case I would think that cvstrac ticket #30 also does not
benefit from the cache-purging.

Your comments clear up the confusion, though. Thanks!
