It is still reproducible for me.  I don't maintain the RedHat cluster
machines, so I don't know the status of patches, etc., but I could ask if
we really want to track this down.

Steve, did you try boostraping on a 7.3, moving the resulting build
directory to a 7.1, and trying the following:
[fluet@cfs15 test 3]% cat z.sml
val _ = (print "name: ";
         print (CommandLine.name ());
         print "\n")

val _ = (print "arguments: ";
         List.app (fn s => (print " "; print s)) 
                  (CommandLine.arguments ());
         print "\n")
[fluet@cfs15 test 4]% mlton z.sml
[fluet@cfs15 test 5]% ./z @MLton --
name: ./z
arguments:  @MLton --
