Apparently glsa-check is *not* done automatically with emerge -u (That's surprising...)

This morning I read about a Firefox vulnerability, so I decided I'd run glsa-check to see if there was a fix for it yet (having just finished doing an emerge -avuDt world and not really feeling like doing another sync)... dozens and dozens of un-patched alerts! I'd assumed that using the "u" (update to the "best" version) flag would automatically update with the security patches too. Oops.

Has already rebuilt large parts of kde 3.3, and mod-php, now is back re-rebuilding kde-graphics 3.3 :( . Guess I'll have to get in the habit ot running it every day if I want to avoid this kind of thing.
