Ooops, sorry.

Rancid version: 3.6.2
Fortigate model: 1500
Fortigate version: 5.2

Here, a part of the config where the backup stop.

    edit "Web_RIMP_MedEcho" 
        set uuid 607c4e8a-cae4-53e4-6d10-8a0d7a7980oe 
        set type fqdn 
        set comment "C2 # 1182274" 
        set fqdn "www.prod.xxxx.xxxx.xx.xx" 

If I change the comment line for:

set comment "C2 # 1182274"
set comment "C2 1182274"

It will work through the next comment line where the # sign appears again.
