Problem with rulesets

If I recall correctly it shouldn't matter, but do you have spaces or
tabs between the entries?  I'm pretty sure that Julian made it so one
can use spaces, but I always use tabs anyway.  An easy thing to try,
even if it doesn't work.  Probably won't make a difference, but it's the
only thing I can think of at the moment...

The apache bit was added recently because i installed MSRE after puling
my hear out adding rules manually. It didnt change anything. Either way
everyone has read permissions for that file.
