[dev-context] --passon won't pass on two arguments to pdftex

Also from the testing scripts, another small buglet.  I can't figure out
how to pass on two cmdline arguments to pdftex.  I tried these ways

  texexec --nonstopmode --passon="-file-line-error -recorder" a.tex
  texexec --nonstopmode --passon="-recorder -file-line-error" a.tex

but it seems that only the first piece is passed on (either
-file-line-error or -recorder), rather than both.  (Linux, i386, Ubuntu,
bash shell, 2007.01.23 version).

Giving two passon options also doesn't work, at least not that I could

 last extremes of injustice and oppression.'  (Gibbon)
