gnu hello bug report

Hi guys,

love your proggy, but found a bug

here's the info you requested to be provided with any bug-report 

-- version of hello

zapp ~ # hello --version
hello (GNU hello) 2.5

-- hardware and operating system names and version

zapp ~ # uname -a
Linux zapp 2.6.31-gentoo-r10 #2 SMP PREEMPT Tue Apr 6 19:36:30 CEST 2010 i686 
Intel(R) Core(TM) Duo CPU L2500 @ 1.83GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux

-- expected behaviour:

zapp ~ # hello -n -g moin
| moin |

-- description of problem or any erroneaous output:

zapp ~ # hello -n -g moin

-- option to configure

./configure --prefix=/usr --build=i686-pc-linux-gnu --host=i686-pc-linux-gnu 
--mandir=/usr/share/man --infodir=/usr/share/info --datadir=/usr/share 
--sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var/lib --enable-nls

-- anything else I think might be helpfull

For some reason, the ebuild "app-misc/hello" is masked in the gentoo packaging 
system. maybe this hints to some bug or incompatibility in general.

We think we already have an idea what is happening: obviously the command-line 
parser implemented in hello only honors the last option. we have tried many 
different combinations of options, while our assumption held true.


greez, moin, and thanks for the beautiful software, looking forward to a quick 
fix, or, if that is not possible, at least some kind of a workaround,
