      Description

      **Reported in Launchpad by Alexey Kopytov last update 11-09-2014 10:21:33

      The xtrabackup binary accepts arguments which are not options, i.e. prefixed with '--'. For example:

      xtrabackup --backup backup_dir

      succeeds and creates a backup in the ./xtrabackup_backupfiles directory instead of backup_dir.

      Such invalid syntax is error prone and should be rejected.
