See duplicate Issue 22363 for the traceback, and a workaround. There is also a patch there similar to Garrett’s original fix, but using the RE r'%s *%s ?'.

I restored the diff from Garrett’s repository, in case it is still useful.

Yogesh: I am not familiar with how the code works, and I struggle to be excited at using regular expressions to build a usage message :). But can you explain why you changed Garrett’s original fix? Does it affect intentional double spaces (or tabs, non-ASCII spaces, etc) in customizable parts of the usage message?
