util-linux: getopt: broken --name option for a while now

Greetings, All!

This has been plaguing me for several years, but only now I got to test it
more thoroughly.
Shame on me.

$ /usr/bin/getopt --options '+H' --shell sh --name x -- -d
getopt: unknown option -- d

Expected output:
x: unknown option -- d

$ /usr/bin/getopt -V
getopt from util-linux 2.25.2

Poked around,
getopt from 2.20.1, 2.27.1, 2.31.1 and (reportedly)2.33 works as expected.

Is there a chance for an update?

With best regards,
