Subject Re: bug in catalina.sh

Fabien,

Since the "$@" is necessary to preserve quoting of arguments with spaces in
them, changing it to $@ is not a really good solution. First off, which Unix
platform are you using? I know that the "$@" works on Solaris and Linux and Mac
OS X.

Also, have you tried using "${@}"? Most platfroms don't require the curly braces
to preserve quoting, but maybe yours does.
