Positionals with '*' are discussed in more detail in:

http://bugs.python.org/issue9625 - argparse: Problem with defaults for variable nargs when using choices

http://bugs.python.org/issue16878 - argparse: positional args with nargs='*' defaults to []

http://bugs.python.org/issue18943 - argparse: default args in mutually exclusive groups

I would suggest closing this issue, and refining the documentation patch in 16878 to note that a '*' positional default does not get evaluated.
