+Bug#: 55261
+Product: Mono: Runtime
+Version: unspecified
+OS: unknown
+OS Details: 
+Status: NEW   
+Priority: Cosmetic
+Component: misc
+AssignedTo: mono-bugs@ximian.com                            
+ReportedBy: sdh300@zepler.net

+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: mono --help is printed to stderr
+Running mono --help, the help page is printed to stderr, not stdout as is 
+standard. Thus it is not possible to pipe the output through a pager 
+like 'more' to view the help page a page at a time.
+To reproduce:
+Type mono --help | more
+The entire help page scrolls past and vanishes.
+I am using mono 0.30.2, under Debian/Unstable.
