[GE users] qsub with a slash in it causes truncation of job name output?

Hi all,
If qsub is run with a job that has a slash ("/") in it, it seems to
truncate the output in an unexpected manner...by deleting everything
prior to the character.
For instance:
qsub -S /bin/bash -now y -b y -j y "/path/to/script.sh jobname variable1
variable2 variable3" 
will show in the grid as a process of "script.sh jobname var1 var2 var3"
IF, however, I run it as
qsub -S /bin/bash -now y -b y -j y "/path/to/script.sh jobname var1 var2
it shows the job running as includefile3.txt, instead of the full
command line.
Is this expected behaviour? Is there away to modify this? Escaping the
slashes didn't work...
The job continues to run just fine (and correctly), it just displays
incorrectly in pretty much every grid application like qstat, in qmon,
