I tried on a Sun with a slightly different program:

$ uname -a
SunOS unix14.andrew.cmu.edu 5.8 Generic_108528-15 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-60

$ for f in test*; do echo $f':'; cat $f; done
int main(int argc, char* argv[])
int i;
for (i=0; i<argc; i++)
    printf("argv[%i]: \"%s\"\n", i, argv[i]);
#!/afs/andrew.cmu.edu/usr1/aij/a.out abc 
#!/afs/andrew.cmu.edu/usr1/aij/a.out a b c  
#!/afs/andrew.cmu.edu/usr1/aij/a.out  a b c  

(Unless something removes them, you should get spaces at the ends)

$ ./test.sh 
argv[0]: "/afs/andrew.cmu.edu/usr1/aij/a.out"
argv[1]: "abc"
argv[2]: "./test.sh"

$ ./test2.sh 
argv[0]: "/afs/andrew.cmu.edu/usr1/aij/a.out"
argv[1]: "a"
argv[2]: "./test2.sh"

$ ./test3.sh 
argv[0]: "/afs/andrew.cmu.edu/usr1/aij/a.out"
argv[1]: "a"
argv[2]: "./test3.sh"

The funny thing is that on Linux test2 and 3 look like this:
$ ./test2.sh 
argv[0]: "/afs/andrew.cmu.edu/usr1/aij/a.out"
argv[1]: "a b c"
argv[2]: "./test2.sh"

Sun ignores everythin after the first word, while Linux groups it into one arg removing the trailing whitespace.

Tomorrow I could try on IRIX and posibly others.
