I am not really certain what is going on, but it doesn't sound good.  Normally
I just reset the board and that is probably the right solution.  I am still
struggling to get the new config tool usable, so I am a bit distracted.

We should be rewriting the table even during a reboot.  So the fact
that this doesn't work indicates there is some kind of problem.  What I
don't know.

I can positively report that I have seen this.  If I don't start
pushing my reset code into the tree in the next couple of days please
bug me.
