I'm in the process of trying to rationalise a shell script (ksh) which 
generates several graphs.
I took a working (if wordy) series of 4 graphs and created shell variables 
for each common line, then concatenated the variables to produce the 
actual line to execute.
It breaks whenever it encounters a line of text that contains a space, 
even if I quote the string, it still breaks.
I've checked the output, and the only thing I can see that's different is 
the way the double quotes are handled.

There appears to be some weird parseing that I cannot figure out.
