Error: Invalid line 496 in /etc/postgresql/8.3/main/postgresql.conf: »include 'filename' « failed!

Ok. This is with a Debian PostgreSQL 8.3. I did have a look through
the debian diffs before submittig the report and didn't find anything
immediately obvious that would break the include directive. That said
perhaps it has been changed in CVS; I didn't test that, but only had a
quick look at the code.

Since I thought the lack of = was indeed incorrect syntax I claimed
CVS in the bug report since the documentation has that syntax in CVS,
but I didn't test the CVS version of the backend. I'll see about doing
that but it's going to have to wait a bit...
