Thanks for testing.  Unfortunately, the way I'd fixed this was also 
undoing one of the intended changes in 2.898, so I had to something else 
to fix this a different way in the just released 2.900.  So you might 
want to check that works correctly as well...

BTW, you might want to add '--remove-categories _obsolete' to this 
command line.
