Replying to takkaria:

it shouldn't on multi-user installs, but on others, sure.

I don't think I understand. It shouldn't parse a pathname on multi-user installs? Why not? If someone doesn't give a path then it should of course default to ANGBAND_DIR_SAVE, but why not allow them to specify a local path if they want?

Ah ... maybe you mean the old setgid approach where all the savefiles are not user-readable. Yes ok I can see that - we need to ignore any path in that scenario.

    9 looks for 1000.Chrisc in ANGBAND_DIR_SAVE. This is way to inflexible - the argument following the -u needs to be interpreted as an explicit path and filename.
