I've gotten this before as well. It seems to show up in certain
versions and not others if I recall. Sorry, I don't recall the
specifics right off hand. It'd be nice if it would say something like
which line number it had the problem with though. IMO that'd be
pretty useful in long configurations or when you're testing something
new and aren't 100% sure about some of the syntaxes for a few things.
