Bug#956256: boinc-manager: the -g/--gui_rpc_port option doesn't work now

Package: boinc-manager
Version: 7.16.5+dfsg-1exp1
Severity: normal


Previously I used the -g option to connect to a different port on localhost
for each boinc server (redirected via a ssh tunnel to the real server).  I
filed the above bug report about boincmgr not connecting on startup.  Since
then it has stopped accepting the -g option so I can't connect to other
systems in this way.  It connects to port 31416 regardless of the -g option.
