Summary:                    `top -d 1` results in "invalid number '-1'"
Description: 
after upgrading from busybox-1.11.2 to busybox-1.12.0, passing numbers to
top's delay option fails
======================================================================

This is the result of "top b" support. We declare that all args are
options:

        /* all args are options; -n NUM */
        opt_complementary = "-:n+";

but consequently "-d 1" is interpreted as "-d -1"!

I fixed help text in rev 23490 to explicitly show that spaces are not
allowed:

# ./busybox top --help
BusyBox v1.13.0.svn (2008-09-25 12:49:42 CEST) multi-call binary
Usage: top [-b] [-nCOUNT] [-dSECONDS]
...

Better ideas? (as in: patch for getopt32.c anyone?)
