Thank you for your report.  However the --reply options only
controlled the action when prompts would have been asked.  It did not
have any affect for when the program would not have prompted at all.
This was so confusing to people that the --reply option has been
deprecated in the current stable release and the option is scheduled
for removal in the future.  I recommend that you avoid using it.  It
did not do what you want it to do anyway.
