My earlier fix is also in error, Sorry!

Essentially, we are mixing up single value variable (image) with 
argument array ($@). I found a cleaner fix :

if [ $# -eq 0 ]; then
	image_count=`ls "$RESOURCES"/*.image 2>/dev/null |wc -l`
	if [ "$image_count"  -eq 1 ]; then
		set -- "$RESOURCES"/*.image
	elif which zenity &>/dev/null; then
		set -- "$(zenity --title 'Select an image' --file-selection --filename 
"$RESOURCES/" --file-filter '*.image' --file-
filter '*')"
		set -- "$RESOURCES/Pharo6.1-64.image"		

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

HTH .. Subbu
