It's not exactly a bug in the sense yoy mean. --revprop is for
revision props, and -t isn't a revision, so I would expect the
combination of the two not to work. I would, however, expect that the
program would tell you about the illegal combination of options.
Additionally, it's just a pointless limitation. The option should be
called --rev-or-txn-prop or something, and should work with either -r
or -t.
