#863 Disabling all filter files results in incorrect log messages

version 3.0.21

i want to use Privoxy as http/socks gateway (forward-socks) so the traffic should remain untouched. When i comment out all filter/action files in configuration file i get massive errors.
Error: Inconsistent configuration: tagging enabled, but no taggers available.
Error: Inconsistent configuration: header filtering enabled, but no matching filters available.

This is my configuration:

Actions Files:
None specified
Filter Files:
None specified
Trust File:
None specified

user-manual ./doc/user-manual/
confdir .
logdir .
logfile privoxy.log

What's wrong here?

    Thanks for the report. Fixed in CVS.

    As my previous message apparently didn't make it:

    As a workaround you could keeping the default.filter file enabled and just comment out the action files. The memory fingerprint shouldn't matter, but you could further reduce it anyway by using a filter file with a single line like this:

    FILTER: empty Empty filter to workaround Privoxy bug #3614835
