I might have thought that too but it doesn't seem to be what's causing
the problem because in fact the file env_vars.txt simply lands up with
empty lines. (Sorry, forgot to mention that before!) In other words,
those values don't seem to be getting passed to the script at all.

Just to check though I did try putting an "export" in and the same
thing is happening.

Any other ideas ...?
