Suppose cfgmaker would make the other decision and use what is, in your
case, the correct value.  Don't you agree that there's a not so slim
chance that others will have problems?

IMHO problems should be fixed at the root.  Patching at the wrong place
will introduce problems.

cfgmaker tries to help.  

..."to try and wrestle some better information from willing
    livingston and cisco routers ... (may not work)"...

It may not work.

(Perhaps I'm not looking at the most recent cfgmaker.  No problem,
my comment still holds.)
