It works fine here.

What Snapshot do you use and how long is the line in total? Not so long ago
there was a too small line length limit for this configuration file. If you
find in innd/rc.c a declaration of

	static   char  buff[SMBUF];

in function RCreaddata() you use the limited and old version of INN. For a
quick fix you can increase this line length limit by changing it to

	static   char  buff[BIG_BUFFER];

Or you use a new snapshot because one of the maintainers was smart enough
to make the necessary redesign of this code fragment some time ago.
