Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 598772
guestfish 'help' command should indicate error in exit status with an unknown command

Description of problem:
Issueing the 'help' command in guestfish with an unknown command name exits
with a 0 exit code.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. guestfish help foo
2. echo $?
the exit status of guestfish is 0
supposed to be some other than 0 to indicate an error.
I wanted to use help to test the availability of some new commands in a script,
finding that it's impossible to determine only from the exit status of guestfish.
Therefore I must test the stderr in order to work the result out.

Patch posted upstream:
Please clone this bug if you want this in RHEL 5/6. It's a relatively
simple change to backport.
Closing this. It's fixed in upstream and RHEL 6 but I
highly doubt anyone cares about it in RHEL 5.
