I have examined the documentation provided with 1.19-rc1, and see that
you specifically did not have a space shown for that option '-P[LINES]',
which is understandable do to the optional variable. So I respectively
withdraw this as a reported bug.
However, in looking at the documentation I did notice that when
installed, doing a "info ddrescue" shows outdated documentation. The
included "ddrescue.info" file is updated, but it did not show on my
system (checked on 2 different systems). The info returned pre-dates the
options for the rates and reads logs. To be more accurate, the proper
version is "/usr/local/share/info/ddrescue.info", but there was an older
version "/user/share/info/ddrescue.info.gz" dated from June of 2012. Did
you make a change in the past on where the info file was located? Or is
that from someones packaging? Maybe I had used the Ubuntu repository to
install once previously? Somehow there was an old info file left over :(
I have removed it now, but wanted to make you aware of it.

The new "-P, --data-preview[=<lines>]" does not allow for a space
between the "-P" and the variable. Every other option I have ever
tested has always allowed for a space after the short name. Example:
"-P20" will show 20 lines, "-P 20" will give "No data available".
Not a deal breaker, but it is not consistent with what I have
experienced with all other options.
