As a way of explanation:

There are THREE "generally accepted" ways to send an argument to the TAIL program to tell it how many lines to display:
  "-xxx", "+xxx", and just plain xxx. The latter is considered "bad form" because having a file name containing ONLY numbers is legal, valid, and not unusual -- which creates a possibility of ambiguity.

Your current version of TAIL didn't accept the +xxx format of the argument in the scipt (truthfully, the -xxx is the more common format), but adding the POSIX definition as you did causes TAIL to accept the +format after all.

Just wanting to put an explanation behind the fix.
