Yes sorry about that it was a hangover from the original version when GNU folks insisted all the user-level commands, originally "btr", "rbtr" etc were converted to "gbch-r", "gbch-rr" etc and that got missed mostly because the original code was trying to be too clever translating "argv[0]" in a way which worked changing "btr" to "rbtr" but not "gbch-r" to "gbch-rr".

If you see anything else like it, that's the reason - please let me know.
