Figured it out.

While the first line of my shell script is


...I am in fact a bash user.  One of the things my script is
ultimately trying to do is to start multiple things from within
the screen session by use of teh screen command itself; because
of the shell swap, $STY doesn't seem to be getting set.  If I
change the first line of my script to be #!/bin/bash, it works
as expected.

Thanks for looking.
