Follow-up Comment #1, bug #43323 (project xboard):

I don't get this. What exactly are you doing? With "xboard -scp 'phalanx
-e99'" XBoard should not start Phalanx at all. The second engine is normally
not used, and only started when you select Two Machines mode. So normally you
would play against Fairy-Max (the default first and second engine) when you
start XBoard this way.

Furthermore, I cannot reproduce it. (In 4.8.0, but that should not matter, as
nothing has changed in this area for ages.) When I start

xboard -scp 'echo hallo' -debug -debugfile stderr

(so that I can nicely see what goes on between engine and XBoard in the
terminal) I see that the 'engine' does send "hallo" to XBoard. So it has
obviously seen its command-line argument.
