Subject Re: [users@httpd] Syntax error on line 1 of http.conf: invalid command \xff\xfe#

You edited it in utf-8.  I hacked this long ago to ignore the leading
bytes but it looks like you might have corrupted them (it's supposed to
be a three byte sequence, and somehow you'd truncated it to two bytes?)
