This probably isn't a backtic problem, but using backtics causes it.

ls `ls`

results in file not found errors. ie:

bash-3.2$ ls
35ms  40ms  80ms
bash-3.2$ ls `ls`
ls: cannot access 35ms: No such file or directory
ls: cannot access 40ms: No such file or directory
ls: cannot access 80ms: No such file or directory
bash-3.2$


thanks
