Yes, hello Tarqi,

i am sorry for the inconvenience caused by S-nail -- thank you very much for reporting this!

The problem is faulty argument parsing (so to say) of the S-nail builtin argument parser (which is used only when the native getopt(3) implementation is not BSD-alike).
I have already committed the necessary fixes (to the S-nail [master] branch).

There is another outstanding minor issues which i will look into tomorrow, after which i will release an update version of S-nail.
I blindly assume Gaetan waits with a package update until then.

|Sorry for missing this out :(

I'll mention you in the `NEWS' of v14.6.3!
Gaetan wrote "perfectly reproducible when running `mail -L -n`" and so i did and fixed the bug before actually reading your name in this report.

That's to much honor, it just was a bug report (ashamed). Gruß aus Ddorf :)

Gruß zurück aus Darmstadt (ebenfalls Mosel-Nähe)!

(I think even Gaetan will now accept S-nail v14.6.4 for inclusion. Finally.)
