Zeroing chain (ipchains )

Hi list,

I'm using ipchains on some SuSE 6.4 box with kernel 2.2.19.
Recently I implemented a few rules to log and count traffic
from portscans (coming from know IP addresses).

I use ipchains on this box mainly for accounting really and now
I'd like to reset (i.e. set to zero) a few chains.
According to the manpage on my system it would go like this:

ipchains -Z chain_name (i.e. ipchains --zero chain_name)

But nothing happens! Am I missing something or should I be worried?

TIA for any input on this.

Erwin

PS.: ipchains -V says ipchains 1.3.9, 17-Mar-1999
