I'm convinced that this is the problem then.  This is looking like a pretty
busy week, but I'll try to make sure that 1.0.2 gets out next week, which
will take care of this.

That doesn't matter - sections can appear as often as they like (so can
options - later values just replace earlier ones).  Our writing code tries
to be good and lump sections together, but it doesn't always succeed,
particularly when adding a new option to an existing section (as opposed to
a new option in a new section).  Since humans rarely look at the file
(unless they manage it by hand) it shouldn't really matter.
