There shouldn't have been, but of course the config file parsing was
changed in 3.1.5 so it's not impossible that a bug crept in.

For the config file you posted, I'd actually put all of those
exclude_url lines into a separate file--it saves typing all of those
"\" at the end of the lines.

I guess the first thing I'd check in that config file is that there
isn't whitespace at the end of the lines, after the \ characters. You
also had the last line ending in a \ but nothing after that. I
wouldn't suspect this to be a problem, but I'd remove it anyway.

Gilles made the config-related changes for 3.1.5 so he might have
some additional ideas.
