In some circumstances the HAProxy clone front-end button can add blank list entries to the front end being cloned resulting in a config that cannot be applied.

It's not just that - the clone/duplicate/whatnot button is borked in general. E.g., when you "duplicate" an ACL, the original entry gets screwed with nonsense, and the new entry does not contain the edits. Seen some whacky behaviour with backend as well.

@Steve, the first issue of empty items being added when duplicating should be fixed in next version..

As for ignoring blank entries, i don't think should be needed..

@Kill Bill, i'm not sure what you mean here exactly.? Can you describe the steps to reproduce the exact.?. Are you duplicating acl's or frontends.?. The frontend issue should be fixed when above pullrequest 165 is commited.

@Pi Ba
I agree that it should not be possible to end up with empty entries in the config but in the case that somehow happens the backend should just ignore them rather than trying and failing to interpret that.

Works fine here with pfSense-pkg-haproxy-0.52_4.
