Interesting.  So, what do you get with a manual run?

    /bin/echo --foo --bar
    /bin/echo -- --foo --bar

I see all the option information output literally, including the --.
What do you get if you try a "make check" using that perl -e patch
instead of echo?  Does it still succeed for you?

Very weird.  I don't see how my change could affect a short option's
separated arg.  Attached is an even safer version of the change that
ensures that the only time it ever sets longArg to NULL is if the
longArg was set to oe + 1 upon finding an equal sign.

I also tried using valgrind in the test suite:

    result=`valgrind $builddir/$prog $*`

and the test-run didn't turn up any errors.
