use "" arround the scale value; otherwise the -10000 is interpreted as another 

The -a 3 option will only work with a centerpoint like -w Munic

I think there was a bug in one of the old ones.

Otherwise use Area downloading with something like
    gpsfetchmap   -w Munich -a 10 --scale "10000-100000"

I hope these hints will help you...
