That was a long standing gripe of mine too, fixed in BLAST+ 2.2.28 and
available in the BLAST+ wrappers on the main Tool Shed since Dec 2013,
http://toolshed.g2.bx.psu.edu/view/devteam/ncbi_blast_plus/ - see also:

Yes, that was a pain. It was the main reason for writing this tool:

Yes, I'd also like the standard BLAST+ tabular output to include a #
(hash) commented header line listing the fields (tab separated). They
do something like this in the extremely verbose commend tabular
output, but that adds a lot of other largely redundant comment lines
as well :(
