Yep: that's what it is. I constructed various test cases for trap but
I never noticed that you exec'ed in the script. And that, as you say,
means it doesn't run the traps. I feel somewhat happier now I
understand *why* they're not being run. The puzzlement (and the tmp
directories) were gettig to me :-)
