When you say you are looking up Trapd.conf I presume you are looking at the
trapd.conf that appears in /usr/OV/conf/C because in my experiences the
trapd.conf in /usr/OV/conf does not update. Have you checked to see the
actual traps in xnmtrap.
B.T.W. There is a utility xnmevents and UpdateTrapXXX which merges a file
into the trapd.conf, BUT if think it is part of the Ciscoview/works package.
