Hi Steven,

It was before that.  I went through the archives and it seems that it
was broken when the the 'if' statement that referred to PRE_HOOK was
changed to a 'switch' on "hook_type", with the CMD_{PRE,POST}_HOOK

I will check the patch in latter today, but this shows that we need a
test for this.

Can you send me a sequence of commands and expected responses that would
test if the post hook has been correctly installed and another one
showing that the pre hook has not been clobbered?  I can use it to
create a dejagnu test for it.


 it was a simple problem and the patch to fix it is attached.
