There are 38 unquoted $i in /etc in i386 installing base+laptop+standar

There are 172 "$i" (maching without spaces around) 38 of them matches
whit spaces around (unquoted).

Some are iteration numbers, some are directory, files, etc...

I've not time neither humor, to fill such bugs or not bugs depending
on the situation.

That has been my first command after login:

     grep -R ' $i ' /etc/ | grep -viE '(binary|no such)'

Just in case that some good person as time and humor (what I lack
today) to review it and file the bug if may be convenient.

So, what is the problem with this? Both usages are legitimate (if one
understands what she is doing, of course).

yes, and probably they are called with a controlled environment.
Anyway IMHO they should be improved:
- people copy codes, not realizing that changing context effects
  the security
- system files are usually taken as example (of good coding

So I would *improve* them.
