I don't mind changing my script with your patch. But this does break
other scripts of mine that I need to hunt down and change. My fear is
why do we need the '-s' when there may be other methods to preserve the
old functionality.

If this is breaking my scripts, I wonder if it is also breaking other
scripts out there too? As you stated, it wasn't until recently that the
help message recommended the '-s'.
