Follow-up Comment #2, bug #43323 (project xboard):

Well, if -scp is only used in 2-machine mode, that figures. So if I issue:

> xboard -scp 'phalanx -e99'

and then - in XBoard - I choose 'Machine Black', XBoard ignores the
secondChessProgram and calls its default firstChessProgram; which in my case
is Phalanx, without parameters, as I have this line in my ~/.xboardrc:

-firstChessProgram              /usr/local/games/phalanx

Basically, I was trying to use -scp because I wanted to see if I could start
XBoard in 'Machine Black' mode (1st player human, 2nd player engine).
