So, if Getopt::Long is up-to-date in blead, and up-to-date in maint,
I think this problem is fixed.

/me tests ...

You are now on patchlevel maint-5.10 2009-05-27.00:14:05 a524575ae930f79c9d69eb19db19ad24b558b4f0 GitLive-maint-5.10-1218-ga524575
$ ./perl -Ilib -Mbignum -MGetopt::Long \
         -e'my $v = 0;' \
         -e'GetOptions ("v:1" => \$v)'
$

Yep, no (more) problem.
