I know that the above is likely to be a dash.  The point I was trying to
make was that if you provide a test case you should provide, as much as
possible, the exact command needed to duplicate the problem.  Having to
guess about "echo_server_ip_address" and "port" and if that is actually
a dash in front of the 'w', is just putting barriers in front of anyone
who is trying to debug the problem.
