-odd header behavior?

Hi Hive Users,
Please tell me if i am missing something. I prefer to run hive on a thin
client so i connect to a hive server by specifying a (remote) host and
port. (eg. $ hive -h <host> -p <port>) However, my sql results are not
coming back with headers - even though i explicitly request such. To wit,
[namenode1:10000] hive> set hive.cli.print.header=true;
[namenode1:10000] hive> select * from sprague_test;
if i log on to the host where hadoop is running and run hive there w/o
specifying a host and port - i do get the headers. Moreover if i am on the
hadoop host and i run hive with -h and -p as localhost - i don't get the
So whats up with hive.cli.print.header in remote mode?
