Command line takes precedence, so just reverse the order.

AIUI, the original issue was doing the P2V translation was happening
too early and the VA could be wrong if the linear range is adjusted.
So I don't think this would work.

I suppose you could convert the VA back to a PA before any adjustments
and then back to a VA again after. But that's kind of hacky. 2 wrongs
making a right.
