[ferret_users] ferret -script dir/script.jnl

Hi Ferreters,

I'm wondering if this is a bug in Ferret.  Basically,
I've been trying to use Ferret like this

     ferret -script dir/script.jnl

unsuccessfully, so far.  Here's a transcription of a session
to illustrate the problem (where the "$"s are the shell prompts):

  $ echo say hello > hello.jnl
  $ /usr/local/ferret-6.0/bin/ferret_v600 -script hello.jnl
  $ mkdir tmp
  $ echo say hello > tmp/hello.jnl
  $ /usr/local/ferret-6.0/bin/ferret_v600 -script tmp/hello.jnl
   **TMAP ERR: non-existent or not on line
  GO tmp/hello.jnl
  Command file, command group, or REPEAT execution aborted
  STOP -script mode, ERROR RUNNING SCRIPT statement executed

I've also tried 

   . . . -script \'tmp/hello.jnl\'


   . . . -script \"tmp/hello.jnl\"

but neither works.

I'm using Ferret 6.0 on a Debian GNU/Linux machine.
