outputpbnj Error: Error in option spec: “test|=s”, Error in option spec: “debug|=s”

Earlier tonight while testing the functionality of pbnj including both scanpbnj and outputpbnj on Backtrack Linux I noticed an error with outputpbnj. It appears that during one of the last updates the developer accidentally let a small bug slip by but unfortunately it stops outputpbnj from working at all. The good news is the outputpbnj bug is really easy to fix by remove a couple characters from a single line of the code base. Follow the directions below to get outputpbnj working properly on Backtrack Linux 5 R2.
