    Does anyone know a system / platforms where /bin/sh has this bug?

I had a note in texi2dvi that DEC Ultrix 4.3 and Digital Unix failed to
handle "$@" right.

However, Nelson just told me that more recent dec os's, OSF/1 4.0 and
5.0, handle "$@" correctly.

So, I suggest using "$@".  Seems like the least evil.
