Done. I'll try to debug the %h problem, as I suspect that may not be
due to the underlying library, and even if it is we should be able to
work around it by changing %h to %b before the system call. I just
took a look at the code that is involved, but I'll have to trace
through with the debugger to make sense of it, as it is riddled with
conditional compilation blocks.
