Yep, seems every release I am in there cleaning up some mistake repeated
multiple times in the code.  It needs a good cleaning.

I'm happy to volunteer to do something about the invalid field
combinations, but I suspect an overhaul of formatting.c is more than I
can currently chew.  I figure it would be a bit misguided of me to put
together a patch for invalid field combinations if somebody is about
to do a rewrite of much of the code?
