Just the first occurrence, but note that you aren't quoting variables
and globs in general, which means that your code is going to break if
you get a filename containing a space, or in some cases a directory
path containing a space.

Just something to be aware of anytime you are scripting.  I know
because the Gentoo ebuild QA tool is constantly reminding me of it
before I commit anything.  :)
