I suspect you've got some problem with either -x or with your shell
outputting a blank line when it starts up a subshell. Either way, I'd
guess that you've spent enough time tracking this one down.

My advice: install it. You'll probably never use -x. And it it is a
problem with your shell, you'll come across it when you first code up
a `` example, and then it'll be easy to find (because it will be your
code that provokes the problem).
