shrug. I've just changed it in 6.5svn to be "|" instead of ";" with r44633.
if that works we can backport to 6.4

no, not a bug. layer= needs to default to 1, and the print commands need
to default to printing all layers. so printing ignores layer=, and the
flag descriptions do say "all".

well that doesn't necessarily mean that layers 2,3,4,5,...,9 exist.
Someone might want to base the layer number on some category or other
local need; sequential starting with 1 is just common convention, but not
a requirement. There's no reason someone might not have 50 layers for a
single map. e.g. I think imported DXF data might end up with something
like that, VMap0 (digital chart of the world) data too.
