I think that probably is a problem but line # 62 which he had previously 
reported as causing problems in the text he sent is:

deb jaunty main #WineHQ - Ubuntu 9.04

If he deletes the part after "main" it should fix the problem.

Also line 63 appears in Steven's email as:  "Jaunty Jackalope"

This is probably kmail wrapping a long line and is probably the end of line 
62, but if not it should be deleted too.
