This is correct. Revision 1698 contains this fix.

The behaviour is now:
- If -o contains a path, it overrides any previous -FE. 
  If -o does not contain a path, it leaves any -FE setting intact.
- If -FE is specified after -o, it will override the output path.


 -FEdir1 -odir2/binfile     outputs in dir2
 -FEdir2 -obinfile          outputs in dir2
 -odir1/binfile -FEdir2     outputs in dir2
