Subject: dbst problem when built against 3.13.1

Hello -

Recently, I rebuilt a subset of extensions against R3.13.1 
(with a little more effort than anticipated - I thought it would 
be a matter of changing a few CONFIG files and rebuilding - Not!).
So far, the extensions that we use are all working as before except
for dbst, the tool that checks .db files and strips out unnecessary
lines.  I believe dbst is used mostly by people who generate .db
files from CAPFAST schematics via e2db.  

The R3.13.1 dbst does not strip out fields that are initialized to 
zero.  As a result, the .db files it generates are significantly 
bigger and IOCs take longer to reboot.  Also, it can affect bumpless 
reboot if you restore your subroutine/calc inputs before 
InitHookafterInitDatabase (the zeros will override what you restore 
for these).

Has anybody seen this problem and fixed it?  My first guess is that 
there is a change to some dbStatic routine that is called by dbst.

Thank you,

Stephanie Allison
