[NTG-context] texexec command line switches missing in ruby version

I'm not sure if your command got mangled by the mailer disliking long
lines, but it looks like you have this line:
ralf at schrotti:~/tmp$ ~/texmf/scripts/context/ruby/texmfstart.rb texexec t.tex -- result bla.pdf
i.e. something like "texexec t.tex -- result bla.pdf"
The texexec man entry, I think for the perl version, says:
Allows you to change the basename of the output
file. See --mode for an example.
And this command works:
texexec t.tex --result=bla
Although at the end it says:
TeXExec | renaming t to bla
TeXExec | restoring t
TeXExec | fatal error No such file or directory - t.tuo
Is the last line anything to worry about, perhaps in a more complex
test file that needed the .tuo file?
By the way, I use these two executable scripts to shorten the command
$ cat /home/sanjoy/bin/texmfstart
ruby `kpsewhich --format=texmfscripts texmfstart.rb` "$@"
$ cat /home/sanjoy/bin/texexec
texmfstart texexec.rb "$@"
