Bug Description

Binary package hint: gtwitter

Man page reads

SYNOPSIS
       gtwitter [--composite] [--debug] [--help] [--version]

OPTIONS
       These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long
       options starting with two dashes (‘-’). A summary of options is
       included below. For a complete description, see the Info files.

                 --help
                 show summary of options and exit.

                 --version
                 display the current version and exit.

                 --composite
                 enable composite interface.

                 --debug
                 print lots of debugging messages to stdout.

In fact, all options are ignored & gTwitter opens regardless of options passed.
