After a bunch of digging, the issue is actually in trunk and
not 1.6.0, but 1.6.0 is not free of issues.  Can a bug marshall
re-open bug id 11040?  I am now seeing issues with option parsing
that did not exist when the patch was closed, or at least not

The approach I used to allow moderators and normal callers to
have separate options may be bogus, and I could use some hints
towards a better approach.
