[LDM #AYM-585601]: LDM bug: -close in EXEC won't cause LDm to stop loading if you forget the "-"

Hi Gilbert,

Actually, 'close' would be interpreted as the executable that the product
should be PIPEd to.

IMO, even if there was, it would probably not be a good idea to
add special "edge case" exceptions to the parsing of arguments
for PIPE actions.

Just my $0.02 ...
