Interesting ;).

That depends, what did you change?

In theory, if the change is something that zebra cares about, you should 
see a delete/add issued on the Zserv protocol. It's possible you're 
changing that something that zebra isn't taking into consideration 
(which should be fixable).

Login to the zebra telnet interface (port 2601 by default, if not 
disabled), and set 'debug zebra kernel', then either configure a log 
file, or issue 'terminal monitor' and see what happens when route
