Maybe you can try with the included example config file; if that works just 
change 1 (or 2) things of the things you want to change and test it again. If 
that works again 1 or 2 things, etc. I also had this problem because I was 
using an old config file which I updated when the cvs and the guide was 
updated....It seemed the parsing of the config file was very strict (or a 
bug): sometimes it will not work just because you had put a hard return in 
e.g. the listen section.

ps: You don't need the subsection about service 8888 in the listen section; 
it's just an example.
