New submission from Krzysztof Szawala <kszawala at slb.com>:
I am using optparse for command-line parameters parsing. To follow
common naming convention I defined -d (minus followed by a single
character option) and --debug (double minus followed by a word).
It looks like optparse doesn't complain when -debug (single minus) is
specified and morover it doesn't recognize it as --debug.
I am using Python 2.5.2. Problem was observed on Linux but also occurs
