[PVE-User] vzdump & exclude-path

I removed empty lines, and now at least I get an error:

WARN: unable to parse configuration file '/etc/vzdump.conf' - error at line
9

where the (only) non commented line 9 in /etc/vzdump.conf is
exclude-path:  "/tmp/.+"
"/home/httpd/www.mysite/html/var/ezwebin_site/cache/.+"

so I guess I should avoid empty lines?
(btw, there is an empty line on http://pve.proxmox.com/wiki/VZDump, too)
