Problem with -w variable substitution (Curl 7.9.5 win32)

I am having trouble using the write-out feature of curl. I am using the
Win32 binaries under Windows 2000 Advanced Server SP2. I have also tried
this in W2K Pro SP2 and NT v4 Server SP6a+ with the same results.

Whatever text I put after --w displays but the variables never get

I have tried double %'s, single %'s, with "", without "", with (), without
(), and several other variations and I can't get the variables to show. I
have also tried using a config file. It always come back with straight

For example:

curl -O -s -w \t%%(url_effective)
<> gets the file and returns


Thanks in advance for your assistance.
