Hello Masatake,

Thank you for your contribution!

I'd rather not modify __cmdLineOpts__ outside of command-line options, but reused sys.stdout.isatty().

Fixed upstream through https://fedorahosted.org/sos/changeset/1084

Thank you for fixing.
Just a question. Why "Component" field for this bugzilla entry is changed from sos to 0xFFFF?

Sorry, that's a browser-side bug.
