After the upgrade did you change the run script to use your config file?
Also, since you are using a Mac, you may want to have a look at the builtin
Diff program. Open up the terminal and type "man diff" to see instructions
on how to use. ZsCompare is a commercial product, and if you don't do a lot
of development, save yourself a few...um, francs, euros? Anyway, good luck.
