[wp-hackers] update_option problem

Where is your code actually updating the permalink structure? 
Have you called $wp_rewrite->flush_rules()?  If not that might be your problem.
Also, I'm not familiar with 'update_option_permalink_structure' 
Finally, you typically want to update rewrite rules on an plugin activation:

Hi all :)

I've been trying to figure out why the following doesn't work:

Plugin Name: permalink check
Plugin URI: ...
Description: ...
Author: ...
Version: 1.0
Author URI: ...

function permalinkage()
	global $wp_rewrite;
	echo $wp_rewrite->get_category_permastruct();
add_action('update_option_permalink_structure', 'permalinkage');

Permalink structure gets updated, but get_category_permastruct() returns 
previous value each time.

Is this related to option caching, maybe?

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
