This is clearly a bug. It is due to the way arguments are expanded in the stk shell script. A simple solutions consists to modify the end of the stk launcher
and replace the two $* which are at bottom by "$_at_". This gives
        if [ "$DISPLAY" = "" ] ;then
          exec $STK_LIBRARY/$id/snow-bin "$_at_"
          exec $STK_LIBRARY/$id/stk-bin -name stk "$_at_"
Hopefully this problem will disappear with next release since there is no more a shell script for launching the interpreter (the interpreter finds itself the place of the library files relative to the path of the stk executable file).
