[mrtg] Getting error when trying to use new template with cfgmaker

You may have a corrupted copy of the template; sometimes, lines that are overly long get 'helpfully' wrapped by Notepad or some other editors.  Check that there are not lines broken at odd places.  I've checked the template and it appears to have some wrapping but not in significant places; I removed the unnecessary newlines anyway.

The error message talks about a ')\' sequence; there should not be one of these in the file (at least, not looking at the code I can see) so possibly something has been accidentally changed?
