My apologies for not making it clear, I was under the impression that
this was a rather "standard" way of running scripts.

Well, not really as now error messages do not seem to reflect line
numbers any more, e.g. I get a complaint about the presence
(broken pipe) of a cat() statement at a line number no way near
any cat() statemnt.

BTW, does this imply that when running in batch mode there is no
connection to standard output? Can this be overcome?
