another reported bug:

The manpage of LCDd have long options which doesn't work:

LCDd [--help] [--type <size>] [--driver <driver> [args] ]
[--foreground ] [--backlight <mode>] [--serverinfo off]

$ ./LCDd --driver
=2E/LCDd: invalid option -- -

Package: lcdproc
Version: 0.4.3-3
Severity: normal

It appears that there are problems using long command
line options (those starting with --) with the lcdproc
server daemon LCDd. There also seems to be a problem
with specifying driver specific options in LCDd.

For example, the following command doesn't work=20
bash$: /usr/sbin/LCDd --driver MtxOrb

and gives the following error:

/usr/sbin/LCDd: invalid option -- -

The manpage says to execute the following command to
get a list of driver specific options but this gives
me an error

bash$: /usr/sbin/LCDd -d driver --help

/usr/sbin/LCDd: invalid option -- -

[--snip-- the rest of the output deleted...]

It looks like all the long command line options are disabled.
