I had this problem a while ago.  It turned out to be the version
of echo that is supposed to be on the floppy had gotten
installed instead of the real one.  And this version of echo
had a bug with that exact effect (it said "write(1, *argv, sizeof(*argv))"
instead of "write(1, *argv, strlen(*argv))").

But both the bug in echo and in the installation have been fixed
long (weeks) ago, so I don't know why you get it now.
