Bug Description

%> ./pt-mext -r -- mysqladmin ext -i10 -c8640 > mext.out

Gives me an argument too long error at line 631:

629 # Print output
630 AWKCMD="printf(\"$SPEC\n\", \$1, \$2$AWKS);";
631 awk "{$AWKCMD}" "$FILE`expr $NUM + 1`"

Surely there's a better way to do that so that I don't have to collect less data?
