I presume you mean paths like /home/ etc., I'll fix those.

Re the edited file, sorry, I thought I was doing a good thing by
removing the comments and making it shorter. Here's the file as it
was, totally unedited.

             first connects, thereby significantly reducing the
startup 
             time for listeners that do substantial buffering.
However,
             it also significantly increases latency between the
source
             client and listening client.  For low-latency setups, you
             might want to disable this. -->
