: Replaced by Cold Start"^M

The curly braces in the ENTERPRISE clause are illegal. Removing them
might help. If in doubt, check the MIBs with smilint from the libsmi
toolset for validity first (and file bug reports to whoever is

I am working on integrating the libsmi parser into the scotty package
so that MIBs have to pass smilint in order to be acceptable anyway.
