In newer Linux distribution having double quotes in the toexec variable (triggered by introducing the use of JAVACFLAGS) resulted in an error when trying to execute . As there is no shell formed by the line, there is no interpretation of the line (which would normally resolve the double quotes). Solution here is to run toexec through 'bash -c'
