    Classification: Desktop
           Product: GStreamer
           Version: unspecified
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Normal

A one line program

import gst

reacts to a command line with parameter --help or -h, and gives garbled gst
help and quits.  True also if the import is buried inside other imports.

In a longer script with a command line parser, this preempts the main script.

Get rid of this behavior when gst is not __main__.

Using 64 bit Ubuntu 10.4
