Description of problem:

$ pulseaudio -meow
pulseaudio: invalid option -- m
E: main.c: Failed to parse command line.
pulseaudio: daemon/ltdl-bind-now.c:156: pa_ltdl_done: Assertion `lt_dlexit() ==
0' failed.
Aborted (core dumped)

Dumping core is really not what's needed in case of bad arguments.

Additional info:

 void pa_ltdl_done(void) {
-    pa_assert_se(lt_dlexit() == 0);
     libtool_mutex = NULL;

In some cases, pa_ltdl_done() is called before pa_ltdl_init() (there are a coule
of jumps to finish: before libtool is initialized -- and pa_ldld_done is called
in no places other than after finish:). Therefore it can actually and correctly
return zero
