No, it should tokenize this into fields, breaking on the elements in 
$IFS (normally white space).  So you end up with one field and according 
to 'man test', STRING is equivalent to -n STRING.  If you want it to 
tokenize into more fields so the test sees 2 strings and and operator, 
you have some white space there.
