I can only think of two possibilities:

    1) There is a bug in whatever version of FreeBSD you are running and 
-h 1 is somehow *not* the default.  6.2 Release?

    2) There is some kind of bug with your command line, but without 
seeing it, I can't tell.

Glad you got the problem worked around;  when I finally get around to 
6.2 I will be curious to see if I can replicate the problem.
