[torqueusers] problem with qsub -v

I'm getting some odd behavior from qsub.  I'm trying to pass information
in to my job script from the qsub command line through the environment,
with something like

            qsub -v foo=bar  my_job

 Works fine like that, but I need to have a space tin the value string
of the environment variable, eg, 

            qsub -v foo="bar bat" my_job

 That, and any reasonable way that I can think of escaping the quotes or
space fails and sets $foo to some really bizarre combinations of other
environment variables.  Can anyone explain what is going on or how I
should be doing this ? I'm running qsub version 2.1.7.
