Bash behaves as the manual page says. The string is
'/home/yoh/zzz.sh', and every $1 in that string did indeed get
expanded to sdf, after which the command reads '/home/yoh/zzz.sh'.
On the other hand:
$ bash -c 'echo 0=$0 1=$1' sldkjf sdf sdf
$ bash -c 'source zzz.sh' sldkjf sdf sdf
The argument to the -c option is being interpreted as _a shell script_
