The double quotes are required here to skip splitting arguments with 
embedded spaces into different words.

I suspect the error is earlier in the image=$@ assignment. This requires 
double quotes. Double quotes are also required while calling zenity to 
avoid word splitting.

Also, the image_count should be checked before calling zenity.

Can you try with this version?

if [ $# -eq 0 ]; then
	image_count=`ls "$RESOURCES"/*.image 2>/dev/null |wc -l`
	if [ "$image_count"  -eq 1 ]; then
	elif which zenity &>/dev/null; then
		image="$(zenity --title 'Select an image' --file-selection --filename 
"$RESOURCES/" --file-filter '*.image' --file-filter '*')"

# execute
exec "$LINUX/pharo" \
	--plugins "$LINUX" \
	--encoding utf8 \
	-vm-display-X11 \

HTH .. Subbu
