Oh yes, it turns out there was a specific fix for this case (since
most command line options don't override but enable features) in 2.2
back in Nov 09, so not all that long ago but I am senile.  I just
backported this to the 2.0 branch.  Given the issues that remain with
the secure backup behavior I'd like to put 2.2.5 out first before
2.0.10 which contains this fix, but if you (or anyone) would like a
2.0 prerelease containing this fix I can put one up.
