I don't know if ratbox changed the conf file format, but in hybrid,
the format is:

operator {
  name = "<nickname>";
  user = "*@";
  password = "<password>";
  flags = global_kill, remote, kline, unkline, gline,
               die, rehash, admin, xline, operwall, ~encrypted;

Make changes, sighup or restart ircd, try again.
