[leafnode-list] /etc/leafnode/config problems with ma8

I'm upgrading from 2.0b8, and I appear to have this problem with the config

I assume the config.example order has been changed - it certainly has been
altered from Volker's original

I'm now running
200 Leafnode NNTP daemon, version 2.0b8_ma8 at 
But I get

Unknown config line "expire=20" ignored
Unknown config line "initialfetch=100" ignored
Unknown config line "timeout_long=10" ignored

diff /etc/leafnode/config.example /etc/leafnode/config
< # initialfetch = 100

Maybe there should be something in the upgrade info in README.html about
the order (when I find what it should be!)

And if I try the example (exactly as in the distro downloaded this morning)
file - just to check if the order was ok 

sudo -u news /usr/local/sbin/fetchnews -vvv -f -F ./config.example 
Unknown config line "expire=20" ignored
Unknown config line "server=news.hiof.no" ignored
no expire declaration in config file
fetchnews: no servers found in configuration file.
