in thread backtick ignores parameters

A, Sorry if this sounds mean, I dont intend to be, but did you try it?
B, I went back and checked out some old scripts. I had this problem as well a long time ago. I ended up using a question mark to between the params and that worked. I am not sure why exactly (darn this getting old thing). If any monks have some insight to the question mark thing I would be grateful.
let this be a lesson to me to comment code better.

update changed formatting...
also, when you run things from the command line, the shell translates it first. I dont think it works the same way from inside the script. Agian please correct me if I am wrong.
Thanks Josh

    Actually I did try after all :) , just to cover all angles -- tried every variation (with and without ?, with and without &, etc). No luck. You are apparently right about it working differently from within a CGI script ... (see responses below).
