xargs --help

GNU xargs version 4.1.7

installed from debian package: fileutils_4.1-9_i386.deb

invoked with --help does not print newline character
at the end of help message. Because of that my prompt
displays in the same line where help message ends:

As you can see from this session:

[~/w]$ xargs --help | od -xa | tail -4
          g   s  sp   t   o  sp   <   b   u   g   -   f   i   n   d   u
0000660 6974 736c 6740 756e 6f2e 6772 2e3e
          t   i   l   s   @   g   n   u   .   o   r   g   >   .

there's no ending "\n". :-((
