Well, having worked with and used 3.1.5 very extensively, I think I
can say with almost complete certainty that extra blank lines in config
files make no difference at all. Perhaps there's a problem with your
build of the code on your system, but probably more likely there was
a problem with the config file itself, which may have been resolved
inadvertently when you edited the change above. What editor where you
using to edit the file, and was it previously edited the same way?
If you're using a Mac-based text editor, you're asking for trouble,
as the Mac uses a different text file format.
