The --no-desktop option is handled in desktop.el, so if desktop.el is
not loaded, the option is unknown.
If you put
   (desktop-save-mode 1)
in your .emacs, you get no error.

I agree that it is confusing that --no-desktop is documented in --help
but seems to not work. Maybe --help should not list options that are not
loaded by default.

Is there some standard or policy here?
