Description Ben Marzinski 2008-07-23 20:17:55 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #456457 +++

Description of problem:

In a multipath.conf file.  If a section doesn't have a space between the section
name and the open bracket, that section isn't read in.  For instance

blacklist {
        devnode "*"

correctly blacklists all devices, but

        devnode "*"

does nothing.
