I think the tip of Thomas is correct; you'll have to terminate the
argument list before adding "-1" as option. 

I can't find any behavioral difference for the "any" or an explicit

Of course you'll then have to add the loglevel, such as:

> ipsec stroke -- loglevel any -1

> "ipsec stroke loglevel any _1" works just fine.

No, it doesn't in my test. The simple argument parsing just uses atoi(),
which results in 0 when converting "_1"; probably not what you want.
