argus-server: argus interface monitoring confusion

Package: argus-server
Version: 2.0.6.beta.8-1
Severity: normal
Tags: patch


	When a user specifies an interface to monitor through the -i switch,
it is added to a list of interfaces collected from the configuration file.
The expected behavior would be to have -i override the configuration file, 
and not work in conjunction with it. This can become very confusing and lead
to hazardous results. 

	Regards, Yotam Rubin
