        We just migrated from 1.13 to 1.14 to fix a buffering problem, and
we quickly found that a sideeffect of the upgrade was that --delete on a
file no longer works correctly.  It removes the last 1-3 files when run in
this fashion.  I was able to workaround it by running a test delete using
pipes, but this is suboptimal.  Is there an option I'm not seeing that
will allow the rewriting to continue or a fix for this in 1.14.xx? Thanks,
        - Chad
