[PLUG] Weird shell script bug

Hi everyone,

I've got a weird shell script error that I hope someone can help me
figure out. I can go into more detail about why I'm trying to do this,
but afaict this is xcthe basic problem:

I've got a shell script that's setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH and then

  exec /bin/sh $*

$* is set to "-c ../build/foo.exe bar baz".

When foo.exe runs it thinks argv==1 and it doesn't see any of the
other parameters, and so it aborts.

What am I doing wrong?
