I notice similar to this on 0.96.5, that after 100KB the configuration 
file zebra.conf is set 0KB even thought the config is still in running 
memory. Unfortunately because quagga higher than 0.96.5 flaps IPv6 BGP 
sessions like a hummingbird (bug #385) I haven't had time to try higher 
versions for the blanking of configuration file. If I find some unused 
hardware I'll try the rev you used and see if it does the same.
