This is not the proper venue for reporting library bugs; this list is
meant for discussion of the Python documentation.  In the future,
please direct library bugs to the issue tracker

Looking in the Mercurial history of configparser.py
it has never contained the two lines that are in error.  The commented
out line is the real line (and would be the real way to fix things if
the two bad lines did exist :).

I don't know how your copy of configparser.py came to be patched like
that, but you can get a clean copy here:
