mysql-test-run --start-from=testname doesn't work anymore - it runs zero tests no matter what test name I specify.

How to repeat:
Run mysql-test-run --start-from=something  and see something like this:

[spetrunia@dl145s mysql-test]$ ./mysql-test-run --start-from=select
Logging: ./mysql-test-run --start-from=select
MySQL Version 6.0.9
Using dynamic switching of binlog format
Using ndbcluster when necessary, mysqld supports it
Setting mysqld to support SSL connections
Binaries are debug compiled
Using MTR_BUILD_THREAD      = 0
Using MASTER_MYPORT         = 9306
Using MASTER_MYPORT1        = 9307
Using SLAVE_MYPORT          = 9308
Using SLAVE_MYPORT1         = 9309
Using SLAVE_MYPORT2         = 9310
Using NDBCLUSTER_PORT       = 9311

Works in main 5.0 tree from about a week ago.  Didn't check 5.1.

Verified with recent 6.0-bzr. Works as expected with recent 5.0-bzr anf 5.1-bzr.

Seems to work in both 5.1 and 6.0 branches now
