Greg's point isn't about whether the flag is legal. It's about
whether we really *need* to be passing it, whether passing it isn't
just asking for trouble. Like in the case you just encountered :-).
Sure it's a bug in Apple's configuration -- but we didn't have to
stimulate the bug. His point is that doing unusual things tends to
stimulate bugs like this.

I'm not doing anything constructive like suggesting a course of action
here, just trying to clarify Greg's point.
