The comments (with #) and line continuations (with \) don't mix well.

Remove the ", \" at the end of the line with max_udp and uncomment the
stuff you previously commented (stream5_tcp and stream5_udp).

Look carefully at stream5_global and make sure that there isn't a line
continuation ( '\' ) at the end of those options causing stream5_tcp to
appear as one of them.  stream5_global and stream5_tcp must be separate.**
