As we are somewhat delayed with creating a new (point?) release, I'd
kindly ask you to include tis commit into your packaged versions of
Exim: 65e061b76867a9ea7aeeb535341b790b90ae6c21

There should be no impact for ordninary users of Exim. It prevents
the multiple use of '-p <protocol>' option for the command line
invocation. (There is probably no use case for doing so.) By this small
patch we can help improving the security of the underlying system.

This commit is part of the current, but not yet released master branch.
We'll prepare a new Exim version, or do a point release, including this
commit. Until this is done, please include this patch manually.

In case you do not have access to the Git repo, the patch is attached to
this message. It should apply cleanly.

Thank you for your understanding.
