Currently, the tests pass for me.  We would appreciate your help in
figuring out why they aren't passing for you so the problem can be
corrected, but that's a separate issue.

=== I uploaded the testtmp directory contents with the logs and results to:

Perhaps it will be immediately obvious what went wrong, but I can't tell without learning more about your test harness why these three tests failed:

Not confident.  The best approach for now is probably to backport the
--delete-missing-args changes to 3.0.6.  I've done so for you, here:;h=refs/heads/hacks/missing-args-v3.0.6

=== Oh, that's awesome.  Thank you!

I'll apply that and try it.
