Cause: missing support for commas in lexical analyser
Consequence: cgconfig failed to parse commas in the cgconfig.conf file
Fix: add support for commas in lexical analyser
Result: cgconfig can parse commas in the cgconfig.conf file
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #683541 +++
Description of problem:
cgconfig fails to parse due to commas in the conf file
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Problem seen in both: libcgroup-0.35.1-3.fc13, libcgroup-0.36.2-5.fc14 and probably other versions as well.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add a line to the config file that uses a comma for the mask.
For example: cpuset.cpus = 1-3,11;
2. Attempt to start cgconfig
3. Fails due to parse error.
cgconfig fails to start
cgconfig starts successfully
adding a \, to the regular expression on line 35 of lex.l in the libcgroup source fixes it.

I believe this was fixed in the upstream sources, and probably an update has been delivered. Can you please confirm if it still exists for you?
