That's true, and it would solve the problem, which may be why it hasn't
been a high enough priority to fix. I won't fix it: check is written
in Perl, and I don't know Perl well enough to want to mess with it. But
maybe a second complaint about it will motivate someone who does know
Perl to put together a fix.
