Regarding the spaces between CSV values:
I'm terribly sorry, an oversight on my part. I copied/pasted the string of options straight from the manual in an attempt to avoid typing it out by hand and the font was too small for me to see there were spaces in there...sorry (I need an editor with a fixed width font on my phone :-S). I am so used to this not mattering at all (it usually doesn't matter a crap if there's a space between CSVs or not, ...and, it shouldn't either, really. It would be trivial to ignore and makes it a whole lot easier to read for both sighted users and non-sighted users relying on a screen reader, for instance.)
It is interesting you said that the .cfg from me loaded the Files and Settings menus. Settings I understand, as that menu is always added as a safety feature...
Regarding the line endings(<LF> vs. <CR><LF>):
This shouldn't matter at all, and I would definitely call this a bug if it indeed does.
