 Thank you for the bug report. This is now fixed.

 Several notes:
 * The --auto-detect option always attempted to start a game after listing
 the detected games. This is not new and has always been the behaviour
 since this option was added.
 * The --detect option was added more recently to only list the detected
 games, without attempting to start one.
 * There was indeed a bug added recently where it used an incorrect game ID
 for some game after auto-detect, which resulted in the bug you see.
 * There was also an older bug that caused other command line options to be
 lost when using --auto-detect. In particular this resulted in the path (if
 using -p or --path) to be lost, and usually caused the game to fail to
 start due to the data files not being found (the exception being if the
 game had been previously added to ScummVM with a target name identical to
 the game ID, or if the command was execute from the game directory).
