OH, well this was with my distribution's most recent version, which I
assumed would be only a month or two behind CVS.  Unfortunately I've
just realised that according to the banner it's version 0.5, whereas the
"old" version I was running (with a last modified date of 2004) is
version 0.6!

I was going to mention a couple of other issues I found while I was
running your above command, but given that the version is so out of date
I think I'll go file a bug report with my distro instead :-)

Thanks for your response!
