    I think Jari's point is that it's providing O=/something *even* when the
    calling code *DOES* know that /foo is a better directory, so when you pass it
    O=/foo because you know it's The Right Thing for Your Particular Random System,
    it gets overridden.

    Either that, or I need to find more caffeine, and re-parse what Jari wrote... ;)
