I'll try and remove the config file duplicate entries that are on the command
line and try again.

That gamestartup variable just writes the current date to the log file, make
it easy to process for stats and to see who was connected to which games at
which time, the log file will have something like this in it:

\gamename\CoD:United Offensive\gamestartup\2007-11-20 13:59:24\

I did this originally in my CoD2 server so that the VSP stats package would
show a correct date next to the games. I should also note that I use bash as
my shell of choice, not sure if this will work on other shells.
