Registration with --register --regkey=XXX

I was attempting to use the command line flags to trigger a registration so that the computer user is not prompted to register later and does not have to be directly provided the registration key by the IT department and ran into a little snag.
To reproduce, launch the app like this:
open -a "FileZilla Pro.app" --args --register --regkey=XXXXXXX
The app will open, and the registration will be triggered with the registration key pre-filled. You will receive an error message indicating that you must provide an email address.
This seems to be because the radio dial for the first option (indicating that you are providing a registration key) is not automatically selected when the registration key is prefilled from the 'regkey' flag. Clearing the error message, then selecting this radio dial, then hitting OK will successfully complete the registration.
I have worked around the issue in our environment, but thought the information might be useful.
