Per the format info in man 5 hosts_access, there should be spaces around
the : in the hosts.allow and hosts.deny files.  I can't tell if that was
for readability of is an actual requirement.

Excerpt:

All other lines should satisfy the following format, things between []
being optional:

                 daemon_list : client_list [ : shell_command ]

The examples in the same man page only show a space after the colon,
however.
