extcap: Catch unknown arguments to fix spaces

 - If boolflags are being used, an extra space is added
   to the call of the extcap filter. This leads to the
   argumentparser of python to exit with an error-code,
   and the extcap filter will not start. This patch instead
   catches the unknown arguments and prints them on stdout,
   as well as running the dissection with the rest of the
   arguments list.

   Basically this is a work-around, for a behaviour not
   yet fixed in extcap, but it stabilizes the usage of the demo
