This will work also: start = "some command"

The documentation is correct, it is a bug in the lexer when parsing
the config file. This bug was reported a while ago and was fixed in
CVS and in the soon to be released monit 4.0 version.¹

Thanks for the report, keep 'em comming :)

¹ We are done with adding features, and as soon as, Rory, the CPO
(Chief Porting Officer), is done with porting monit to the various
plattforms, 4.0 will be released.
