    This has now been change to the following:

      -b bind_address
          Use bind_address on the local machine as the source address of
          the connection. Only useful on systems with more than one address.

    Hopefully this will be clearer for folks in future.

        Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
    usually comes from bad judgement.
