Oh!!! -c is a csh option....

Someone had to have created that command structure as a practical joke 
on a co-worker back in about 1975... Let's make the login user optional, 
but if you opt not to use it the next argument works completely differently.

Now that I understand it, I see which parts of the man page I didn't 
read clearly. And then on top of that the linux su command actually has 
a -c option, so of course all those docs out there are leading in the 
wrong direction.

Thanks for your help.
