Okay, Okay, 'df' by itself does not use FP, but 'df -v' does.  I think that
is the only argument that will cause FP to be invoked.  I know this to be true
as I have run into the same basic problem as above when using 'df -v', but
when using just 'df' everything was okay.  Actually we need comp.nitpick.war,
just to keep things rolling.
