DPM redirection is very unreliable
When you select save/restore file redirection, the indicator slash is drawn across the affected window(s). In some cases, live updates continue as though nothing has changed. In other cases, all device status displays DPM_Pend and remains this way forever. At times, however, it works as designed. It appears that once redirection gets into one of these bad states, it's not obvious how to get it working again.

Can you test again, Brian? I tried with a couple of save/restore files and it seems to be working. When I turn redirection on or off, I get a temporary error. A second later the correct data is shown. We definitely have to fix those transient error statuses, but otherwise it seems good. The DPM_PENDs could easily have been due to the bug that was recently fixed in
acnetd, so that's why I'm curious if you still see these issues.

I haven't seen this in a while.
Awesome. I'll close out the issue.
The remaining issue with this is to be able support multiple users with different save files.
That's a different issue (#16780).
