Yes, right you are, otherwise I wouldn’t have stumbled over it.

That, or rdeps just ignores anything that isn't a runtime dependency.
Well, that should be clarified, I think, otherwise it might lead over and over again to posts like mine. :-)
Perhaps a warning message would be nice and perhaps an option to enable/disable searching for only-runtime deps.
