as the help says:

  -e, --command=STRING                            Execute the argument
to this
                                                  option inside the
  -x, --execute                                   Execute the remainder
of the
                                                  command line inside

it seems there is a small difference between the 2 options. I wonder if

which was building wrongly the command line. What version are you using?

I'd vote it is the broken version bug. Please retry with 1.99.1, or with
