Bug#649487: detex: segfault with argument "--version"

Package: texlive-binaries
Version: 2009-8
Severity: normal

If I run detex with the argument "--version", then I get:

detex: warning: unknown option ignored - -
detex: warning: unknown option ignored - v
detex: warning: unknown option ignored - r
detex: warning: unknown option ignored - i
detex: warning: unknown option ignored - o
Segmentation fault

While this may seem an odd thing to do, the segfault is worrying, and should be investigated. A locally-compiled version of detex 2.8 downloaded from upstream does not exhibit the same problem - it produces the following:

detex: warning: unknown option ignored - -
detex: warning: unknown option ignored - v
detex: error: -e option requires and argument
