the reason is single-player mode. To see it crash and burn make
max_nargs=17 in connectdlg_common.c and add those switches. Poof.

Now if the question is why they need to be enabled by configure, the answer
is basically that 1. Neither I nor anyone else has written a patch yet. and
2. It would require the user to compile things like server/userdb/lockfile.c
into their server all the time. That might be horrible. I haven't thought
about it a whole lot.
