Maybe it's a visual acuity problem? I have difficulty seeing an extra or
missing "\" at the end of the line. Depending on placement, could you
have something like that causing a chage in the executed command?

Another famous (for me) logging-related one is

   ./somecommand > somecommand 2>&1

when it should have been

   ./somecommand > somecommand.log 2>&1

These are particularly pernicious when my brain is in scan mode and sees
a whole bunch of what it expects to see and not always what is really
there. :(
