Re: Bug#637910: 271 broke -e parsing

According to the documentation, and behavior in 270 and previous, the -e
option eats the rest of the command line, passing that as arguments to
the program executed.
In 270, xterm -e mysql -u foo works as expected.
In 270, xterm -e mysql -h foo works as expected.
In 271, xterm -e mysql -u foo works as expected.
In 271, xterm -e mysql -h foo does NOT work.
thanks (I completely overlooked that). Fixing "-e" is fairly simple,
and it's been a while since #271 (since I've been working on a large
ncurses subproject...). I'll put out a short #272 to cover this.
In 271, the -h variant prints out xterm's help and exits.
In 270, the -h variant does not print anything.
