Ah, I thought it was an actual typo in the manpage. Please apply the patch not removing the -, but escaping it like the others, ie \-8.

Thanks Chris!

Hey Jordi,

Sjust getting to this, my apologies. This patch seems to change the meaning of the explanation for -r. The default value really is -8, not 8. I can apply the rest of the escaping fixes if you like; let me know you you want to proceed.

Lintian pointed me at several escaping errors in the manpage. See for details.

I fixed all of them in the attached trivial patch.
