torbrowser CLI won't open URLs containing question marks

This works: torbrowser

This just launches a new, blank page: torbrowser

(Tested on qubes appvm based on an up-to-date whonix-ws-15.)

Inside /usr/bin/torbrowser, something is removing arguments containing questionmarks from eval.

Does anyone know why eval drops args containing questionmarks? Maybe some security feature on eval?

The issue doesn’t happen with eval from an interactive bash. And I can’t find any documentation about this wierd eval behavior.

I don’t know but good that eval could be dropped. Not needed anyhow.
