So you're suggesting that sendmap works through the gmapsupp.img file  
and replaces the text in --area-name with that in --family-name?     
Seems a bit strange, but I'll test this later to see what happens when  
I set --area-name and then copy the file manually.

I'll also try a diff on the two files and post the results.
