OK, so the problem seems to be here:
# Ignore :descriptions at the ends of lopts for matching this;
# they aren't in the patterns.
I'm still not quite following this, but I think that stuff is supposed
to distinguish descriptions of options from descriptions of the
arguments those options accept. If that doesn't happen correctly, the
options having descriptions containing an "=" later reach this ...
# Descriptions with `=': mandatory argument.
# Basically the same as the foregoing.
# TODO: could they be combined?
if (( $#tmpo )); then
and in that block they get transformed from e.g -a:description: to
-a=[description] which is wrong.
