Thanks for the patch.  I'm concerned that always quoting every argument 
might hurt file globbing (e.g. when you pass foo.* as an argument). 
Howevr, since what you have is clearly better than status quo, and fixes 
an actual regression where older versions of run /used/ to handle this 
situation fine...I'll roll a new update fairly soon.
