Gene, you've been here a while, so you should know better than this.
If you're reporting a problem with a command that you ran, please show
us the actual command *and* its full output (unless that output is
really large, in which case, just show the interesting parts).

My first guess is that Gene either mistyped the command, or used a URL
that has an ampersand (&) character in it, without quoting it.
