However, if you run from $PATH, it works ok > without basename(). I was just trying to duplicate existing behavior, which is for __progname to be the basename-only part. By the way, if patching the program to have its own global var, it must not be named __progname but progname or something else. __progname (beginning with 2 underscores) is in the namespace reserved for the implementation and it's a bug for an application to define names in this space.
