[mrtg] (silly) include question

I could be way off, but isn't this one of those things that changes to
whatever it's set to last? In other worlds as MRTG parses the config
files and include files one at a time, it uses the last 'set' for
WorkDir as it traverses the files and polls network elements.

So that in your master mrtg.cfg file, you set WorkDir to
/home/httpd/html/mrtg, it stays to that setting until mrtg trips over an
include file that sets the WorkDir to something else(say
/home/httpd/html/mrtg/new_router) and continues to use that value
until/unless it's changed.
