start-stop-daemon grammar???

Can anyone tell me why this 'works' (i.e., starts the routing daemon):
echo "Starting routing daemon" ; ${NET}/routed -s

and this doesn't:
echo "Starting routing daemon" ; start-stop-daemon --start 
     --quiet --exec ${NET}/routed -s

(I broke the line into two lines for the purposes of email, but it's one 
line in the /etc/init.d/netstd_init file.)

In the second case, the error message I get is that the start-stop-daemon
doesn't know what to do with the -s flag.
