FPS and glxgears

After upgrading, I found I wasn't getting frames-per-second information with glxgears any longer. I've since been using other applications to get a rough benchmark of my ATI 3D card's performance. Just recently I stumbled across the solution: you must turn use a command-line switch:

$ glxgears -iacknowledgethatthistoolisnotabenchmark

Silly, isn't it? I'm also a bit baffled as to why someone would think this switch is necessary as I doubt printing frames per second would get anyone into legal trouble.

Whatever the case, I thought I'd post it since there's neither a --help switch to get information, nor any man or info pages to reveal what the switches are.
