I've got exactly the same problem recently even twice.
The first time was gone by starting from scratch. I did NOT
figure out what was wrong.
The second time, I now know the problem. csh flags this line
when evaluating variable $@.
The problem is:
% echo $@
Illegal variable name.
While if it is /bin/sh,
$ echo $@
This means (at least to me), I had some trick to my shell.
I had carefully checked my shell environment in chrooted pbulk,
and this issue resolved.
I am writing this mail mainly for my record. I may have the same
thing in the future ;-(
