It's done this since rev 1.1, which was checked in on Sun Jan 14 1996,
which was pre-1.0.1.  I suspect it was inherited from NCSA and never
changed.

After looking at the NCSA 1.3 source, it's clear that we inherited
this misfeature from there.  I haven't found any discussion on it at
all in the archives -- so I say "let's do it."
