      Problem Statement/Rationale

      The copy/paste instructions provided by Atlas for X.509 authentication to a cluster fail with mongosh 1.0.5.

      Steps to Reproduce

      Create an Atlas cluster and an X.509 user in the project. Get the X.509 connection instructions from the Atlas UI and try to run them:

      mongosh  "mongodb+srv://<HOSTNAME>/myFirstDatabase?authSource=%24external&authMechanism=MONGODB-X509" --tls true --tlsCertificateKeyFile ./testdata/certs/client_combined.pem

      Expected Results

      Connection succeeds.

      Actual Results

      Connection fails with "MongoParseError: All values of tls must be the same."

      Additional Notes

      The connection succeeds if I remove "--tls" from the connection instructions. It also fails if I pass a URI that contains "tls=true&tls=true". Per the drivers URI options spec, it doesn't seem like this should be an error.
