[Bug-ed] Two more buglets

Hi again. Sorry about all this mail. I noticed a couple more oddities;
I don't know if they're bugs or not..

Searching for NUL characters using /^@/ matches any line, whether or
not it contains NULs.
and you can't all eliminate NUL characters with 1,$s/^@//g  (that's a
NUL there, control-V address@hidden  There doesn't seem to be a syntax for
control characters other than \n and its friend)

"list"ing a line containing control characters may overflow the
specified line length.  For example, if the line width is the default
of 72 characters, a control characters after the 71st gets printed in
the 72-75th spaces followed by a \

Half the command-line options are missing from the manual page and one
is missing from the --help message
The man page lists -G -s and -p
"ed --help" also lists -h -V -l -v and also the long option names for these
In reality it also responds to -r

Thanks & sorry
