Lando unable to pass through certain Drush commands with -- operator #1173

I'm using the Drupal 8 recipe of Lando v3.0.0-beta.47 on Mac OSX High Sierra 10.13.6

This is a very specific error, but I bet it affects a fair amount of people using Drupal with Lando.

Essentially, the Drush rsync command allows you to pass arguments after a " -- " character, for instance:

drush rsync @dev @prod -- --delete

Using the drush command through lando, arguments after the -- are either not recognized or not respected.

The easiest way to recreate:

From a Drupal8 Lando instance run: lando drush -s rsync a b -- --delete
The output will be: Calling system(rsync -e 'ssh ' -akz a b);

Then, do a lando ssh and run drush -s rsync a b -- --delete
The output will be: Calling system(rsync -e 'ssh ' -akz --delete --ansi a b);

Note that --delete only shows up when calling drush directly, not when calling it through lando.

Any thoughts on possible workarounds? Any more information I can provide? Please let me know and ty for lando!

yeah that is going to be in conflict with lando commands, i.e.:

lando drush cr -- -vvv

all the things after the -- are things that lando looks for so to get the drush stuff to work we'd have to implement some trickery.

I don't have any idea off the top of my head how to make the distinction between them.

@johnpez we've actually removed lando "global" options so this should be possible in the forthcoming rc2
