I thought I needed it for the $work firewall but some more careful checking shows that it's just EPSV that gives it indigestion. > This overrides >both the default setting and fetch(1)'s -p command-line option. I'm less happy with this - my gut feeling in that command-line options should override evnironment variables.

Are there other commands where the environment overrides the command line? -- Peter Jeremy
