Bug in 1.8.0

Well, I'm not sure if this is really a bug, but I accidently set my 'binary'
connection option on and couldn't turn it back off for like the hundredth
time :)  But when killed the MOO process and tail -f'd the log to wait for
it to shut down, I happened to notice a couple screens full of:
Mar 10 00:38:00: *** STREAM_PRINTF: Unknown format directive: %X

After a little more research, it seems that one of these is printed every
time I input a line with my binary option set.  It also seems to be sent
twice for long messages.  This definately sounds like a bug to me, but if
it isn't, can we at least stop the messages?

And while I'm at it, any chance we can get some way to reset our connection
options without disconnecting?  I definately needed one this time because it
was my :notify that was tracing back after setting my binary option so
disconnecting wouldn't have mattered because when I connected, it would just
get set before I had a chance to do anything.  Maybe a .reset command that
would set your connection_options() back to the defaults.  It would have to
work even if your hold-input option was set, and prefereably your binary
option too.
