I did just commit some changes, but after you updated. Certainly please
update again so we're debugging head. I did tons of make replaces last

I think you are hitting a bug that's been there for a few weeks.
Basically my experience is:
$ make replace
will su/sudo to do part of the replace, but not do all the steps
$ sudo make replace
Is this how it is for you?
