[ic] Cannot add new simple option in 4.9.8-release

This will patch the _new_ addition of a 'simple option' problem I've 
explained in my original email (below).  This patch works for me, not 
sure if it's the "right way" to fix it, but it works none the less.

I'm also going to write a HOWTO to deal with the new 4.9.8 option system 
(upgrading from 4.8, etc).  The current documentation is sparse, and 
confusing at times.  But I've been able to get it working for myself, so 
I'll put it in writing and submit it to the list in the hopes it helps 

Patch for simple options follows:

Take care everyone,
