options.wrm -K flag...

Greetings all!

I'm getting fed up with users making typos, and objects springing into
life automagically.  Especially ?Method objects.  So, I note with joy
that there is a -K option that you can put in options.wrm to set a class
so that indirect creation of objects doesn't happen.

Only it doesn't seem to work... If while updating a tag which has
a ?Method value, I still get a warning dialog if the object does not
exist, and then automatic creation, regardless of whether options.wrm
says:

_VMethod -V

or

_VMethod -V -K

I've tried reloading models (although the options.wrm comment suggests
that this is not necessary) and it makes no difference.

Is this a known (pun intended!) bug?  Or am I missing something?

This is using xace 4.9c

Thanks,

Tim.
