Thanks,

That fixed it.

For the benefit of others...
I ran my test program on a couple different versions of bash (including 2.x)
and It seems that this behavior (combination of quotes and * versus @)
changes based on the version of bash, and not just between 2.x and 3.x.  I
did not do an exhaustive test because this solution will work for me.
