"pts in < command-file" is supposed to work just as in your
"pts source -file /tmp/commands.txt" is broken. source is intended
to be a way to pull in files to supplment an interactive front-end, so
is supposed to be used something like this:
lancashire$ echo 'examine admin' > /tmp/commands.txt
lancashire$ pts in
pts> source /tmp/commands.txt
Name: admin, id: 2, owner: system:administrators, creator: bhoward,
membership: 21, flags: SOM--, group quota: unlimited.
Using "pts source" ought to work. I'm pretty sure I have a fixed
version somewhere, which I'll try to locate this weekend.

Windws is built from some of the same source, but as best I can
determine, doesn't have real configuration support for options such

It's ifdef'd SUPERGROUPS for mainly historical reasons. It shouldn't
be ifdef'd at all.
