It's simply checking for longindex==-1 after getlongopt

I am not able to reproduce the problem as I haven't access to an AIX system. Can you please send a patch? What version of wget have you used?

The problem arises in src/main.c:main (lines 954-974) when the program checks for --config option, but doesn't check whether or not longindex is equal to -1.


> if (longindex==-1) continue;
