change triggering the behavior

It was triggered by this change (you can feed it into patch -R to
confirm).  The "--" means the end of the option list to most getopt
implementations (it's specified by SUSv2:
http://www.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/007908799/xsh/getopt.html) and it
means that file names begining with "-" can't be mistaken for
arguments.  I'm not sure if we can do anything about it without
removing that safety.

What kind of router is it?
