Subject: [CR]tubular tire question

I need a little advice from the more experienced. Has anyone ever replaced the tube in a tubular? I know, a great deal of unstitching and work. but if you have ever done so, email me. I punctured the other day, when I went to patch the inner tube, I discovered that the regular glue I used...didn't really do to well on my tubular tube. The tube ended up getting trashed. Now I am wondering, if you replace the inner tube...is there an easier way to stitch it? BTW, I have been running tubulars on my one bike for well over 7 years and never had a flat til the other day.
