I just tried this on my OSX box and did not get that error. I wonder if one of 
the other 108 lines of your config might be in conflict. Or, perhaps that config 
does not play nicely under windows.

I would try: (a) running the same config under Linux or some other unix system, 
and/or (b) paring down your config to just that line and trying on a single test 
file, then adding more config lines till you get the error.
