Subject: getopt.c patch


I have applied the attached fix to Jumbo. I suggest you apply it to core 
- it's a bug fix of sorts.

Without this fix, an option argument can not contain an equal sign, if 
the parameter delimiter is a colon (a contrived core example would be 
--session:weird=name). All other combinations work. For Jumbo, this 
limitation would be very confusing for upcoming functionality.
