Please describe the problem.

git annex assistant ignores the --foreground switch:

florian@marduk ~ % /usr/bin/git-annex assistant --foreground --autostart        
git-annex autostart in /home/florian/.synced_configuration
ok
florian@marduk ~ % 

The assistant ist started, but forks to background. This also breaks the systemd unit from https://git-annex.branchable.com/tips/Systemd_unit/ (add Type=forking to the service works around that)

It seems to be connected to the autostart option, without --autostart it does not go background.

What steps will reproduce the problem?

Have you had any luck using git-annex before? (Sometimes we get tired of reading bug reports all day and a lil' positive end note does wonders)
