[OpenAFS] weird behaviour of pts source

I compiled 1.4.4 on Mac OS X ppc Tiger with the supergroups option. I 
seem to be getting weird behaviour from pts source. It seems to be 
acting just like pts interactive. Am I doing something wrong?

Here is a log:
### I logged into afs as a regular user.
%cat /tmp/commands.txt
examine admin
%./pts source -file /tmp/commands.txt
pts> quit
%./pts in < /tmp/commands.txt
Name: admin, id: 1, owner: system:administrators, creator: anonymous,
  membership: 2, flags: S----, group quota: 20.

Can someone shed some light on this? Does my ptserver have to be 
compiled with supergroups in order for pts source to work? I stumbled 
over this while trying out the command so that I could write the man 
page for it.
