Bug Description

[ Description ]

Videos launched frommthe command line play twice even when totem is not set to repeat.

[ QA and fix ]

1. totem <some video file>
2. When the video ends, it repeats once.

If the bug is fixed

2. When the video ends, it does not repeat.

It's because some commandline options were being processed twice. The fix (cherry-picked from upstream) is to avoid doing that.

[ Regression potential ]

Changes option parsing, so check that this area still works well.
