Yes it doesn't, since to 0.14 the code changed.
What I mean is that the same problem exist in
earlier versions too.  I'll apply a change of
this effect to 0.12.5 as used in Debian now,
something like the one below.

These are much less worrisome - they fail only of the
internal definitions of options are incorrect, which
should never happen.  For example:

            case QEMU_OPTION_hdd:
                drive_add(IF_DEFAULT, popt->index - QEMU_OPTION_hda, optarg,

There, optarg is just a filename, and HD_OPTS is
defined like this:

#define HD_OPTS "media=disk"

So it should not fail when parsing options, only
when trying to interpret and actually open the
filename, which happens much later in the game.



For 0.12 and 0.13:
