Have i made a stupid error?
Yes, i was running nmap as follows
nmap --script verbosity-check.nse -v -p 35871 localhost

which is obvious from the output.  however running the following shows
that verbosity is set to one by default but the documentation[1]
suggests it is set to 0.  could we update that with the patch at the
end
