Yeah.  "Define" commands only change the config, you need to do save the 
config back to the server, or use "set" commands to change things 
immediately.  You might try resetting the server too, after the define 
commands ("initialize delay 0").

I've got a bunch of manuals in PDF form, lemme know off-list if you want them.
