I heard, but never used that myself (mainly because when I was working
on BIRD, UML didn't exist yet :) ).

So far nothing. Feela, did anybody at Cesnet think about that?

If I remember correctly, the debug mode causes BIRD to search for
everything (config, birdc sockets etc.) in the current directory.
Have a nice fortnight
