so what happened between the echo and the ac_incr_dir?
plus every thing got put back together using \ rather than /
the \a disappears, \b removes the previous l.

It is related to the echo "address@hidden".  On SGI is must use the first IFS
value, which is '\'?

The default /bin/sh on SGI is the Korn Shell.

>From the man page:

     The meaning of $* and $@ is identical when
     not quoted or when used as a variable assignment value or as a filename.
     However, when used as a command argument, "$*" is equivalent to
     "$1d$2d...", where d is the first character of the IFS variable, whereas
     "$@" is equivalent to "$1"d"$2"d... .

So perhaps, IFS can be declared as "/\\" rather than "\\/"?
