Thanks for the report.  The internals for this stuff have changed
somewhat for the upcoming 3.1.5 release.  This bug still existed
though.  I have fixed it, although in a different way.

I am not 100% sure that your patch is correct, since command line
variable assignments are supposed to always use period as the
decimal point, and I think your patch changes that behavior.

In any case, I will add your test program to the test suite, to
make sure that the bug doesn't come back.
