Linux issue funny files created

Answered

When I run the Linux version 162.1812.17 idea.sh file, two additional files are created in the same directory with long file names full of non-printing characters. Like this:

0@@X@8@!@@@@@��@@@@��

z�P��

 

both files are zero byte, and are recreated every time I run the sh file. Any idea how I can get rid of these files and prevent them from coming back?

We are aware of this problem, but it's still not clear why this file is created. It happens inside idea.sh script, even before Java is started, somewhere between these points:

It could be some standard Linux utility that is called from idea.sh (like dirname or cat).
