lasground does not seem to copy files with too few points

According to my memory and the readme file "If there are too few points to do reliable ground classification then the files are simply copied...". However it seems to skip these fails despite the `-skip_files` not being given.
Is this a bug, or did I misunderstand something about the current usage?

Thank you,

Hi Roland,
if there are too less points for ground classification the file will be copied from source to target.

lasground64 -i cube.laz -o tmp.laz -v

gives as output 

LAStools lasground (by version 240522
WARNING: input has less than 10 points.
 copying 'cube.laz' ...

The result file "tmp.laz" contains all points of "cube.laz".
Please describe in detail what did not work and how your log output looks like.
