My Host file entries were merged togeter!

Post by hellwoodfire » Wed Aug 01, 2018 9:48 am

Do anyone knows why, since recently, my host file entries with the same ip adress are always automatically merged together on the same line ?
I'm not sure when this happen, maybe when I boot. But I don't like that.
I format my hosts file like this. Notice the same ip on two lines:

e.f.g.h foo.aaa.com
e.f.g.h foo.bbb.com
e.f.g.h foo.ccc.com

Something, I don't know what keep merging my same ip lines:

e.f.g.h foo.aaa.com foo.bbb.com foo.ccc.com

I don't like that because I can't easily comment out certain aliases or add comments to particular aliases.

How can I disable this automatic merge ?
