A couple of the other errors (ie. ones about the wrong user running it) 
should be more verbose and the changes there are good.

But I think that that huge mess of stuff just to tell people the arguments
in the error message is not acceptable, it is not readable, the extra mess
of code to deal with adding the "{buffer overflow}" or whatever it is is

I wasn't yet decided if I should replace it with two lines of code that do
the same thing, but only for the fixed case of 4 arguments, or if it
should just be reverted to how it was originally.
