Okay, I definitely got warnings.  I'm guessing that the allowed
formats changed or something.  Output of --lint is below.  If anyone
can help point me in the direction of 'correcting' my config file
(which was working prior to this SA 3.1.8 upgrade) I'd really
appreciate it.  Changing acceptable formats for config files between
versions is a pretty unfriendly thing to do.
