#1181: Parameter file parsing error message is hidden
 Reporter:  eschnett  |       Owner:     
     Type:  defect    |      Status:  new
 Priority:  major     |   Milestone:     
Component:  Cactus    |     Version:     
 Keywords:            |  
 Parse errors in parameter files are hidden among other output, and are
 thus difficult to spot. This example shows this:
 cactus::cctk_itlast = 3 ;
 ActiveThorns = "HDF5"

 The problem is that the error message is output among the activation
 messages. If the parameter file is long and the syntax error is in the
 beginning, then several hundred lines may be output after the error
 message, which makes it very difficult to spot it.

 The parsing errors should be output in the same way as other parameter
 errors, which are prefixed by WARNING etc.
