-------------------------------------------------------NoExecute=OptOut is a 
switch for data execution prevention in the boot.ini
which is a feature of win 2K3 SP1 and above..
In my opinion the /3GB switch is placed correctly.

I think it's a bug in the latest update to ExBPA.  I reran mine recently 
and it popped up with that warning as well.  I know I have it set 
correctly in the .ini file.  It looks like yours is fine as well.  I 
wouldn't lose sleep over it.
