Output command not working with -q and remote-name in config file. Curl uses working directory.

Expected output command to work rather than file in working directory.

curl version 7.49, 7.49.1. Functions correctly in 7.48

Windows 10 x64

I'm sorry, but can you please give us a full command line that doesn't work for you?

curl -q http:url-to-download.txt -o C:\path-to-output.txt

Downloads to working directory rather than specified output. Curl appears to be reading remote-name in config file in spite of the -q command.
