Description of problem:
evolution --usage prints the following text: (see above). The option description itself is correct, but what about the lot of "[-?]":  Why are they repeated 8 times?

        [--offline] [--online] [--force-shutdown] [--debug=STRING]

        [--display=DISPLAY] [--screen=SCREEN] [--sync] [--name=NAME]
        [--class=CLASS] [--gtk-debug=FLAGS] [--gtk-no-debug=FLAGS]
        [--g-fatal-warnings] [--gtk-module=MODULE] [--oaf-ior-fd=FD]
        [--oaf-activate-iid=IID] [--oaf-private] [--disable-sound]
        [--enable-sound] [--espeaker=HOSTNAME:PORT] [--version]
        [--sm-client-id=ID] [--sm-config-prefix=PREFIX] [--sm-disable]

Additionally, the target mail address is missing in the descripted evolution
Comment 2 Christian Iseli 2007-01-19 20:00:51 EST
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

Comment 3 Joachim Backes 2007-01-22 01:09:47 EST
FC6 does not show the described behaviour. Report can be closed. 
Comment 4 Matthew Barnes 2007-01-22 07:43:08 EST
