I just uploaded a version that has what should be a fix for this, can you
give it a try? And thanks for catching this, you're right, it's an oversight
on my part.

Well, I don't, but you obviously do. :) Let me think about it, doing what
you suggest makes the code more complicated, but if I can find a simple way
to do it, I'll think about it. FYI, the other reason I like this format (and
added tabs to another message that prints in -v mode) is that it is very
visually distinct, and does not run the risk of getting missed in a quick scan.
