Wow someone already using -daemon option (I added it and rushed it in
to the upstream author very shortly before releace :) )

anyway...it is "-daemon" NOT "--daemon" yes this is counter-intuitive

ALL o fth eother xfstt options use only 1 '-' and ALL are long options.

I just followed the convention the author used. Try it an let me know.
