bug in- cut

I just downloaded your wonderful GnuUtils and started working with them.
It is possible I am just not using it correctly; but when using "cut", I
cannot seem to get it to output the fields with anything other than the
input delimiter.  Example, I cut fields 2 & 4 of a comma delimited file and
when I try to redirect it into a file delimited with a " " (space), I can't
seem to get it to work.  Somehow I can't get the --output-delimiter=STRING
to work correctly.  I have tried every way I can imagine and no success.
Is this a but, or am I just missing something here?  Unfortunately, our
organization has recently switched from Unix servers to Windows 2000 PC's
and I am having a hard time working in Windows.  Your programs were an
answers to Windows curses and I: Thank You Very Much for coming up with
such a nice set of Unix utilities that will work in our Windows 2000
environment.     SmileS
