Yes.  Bison-1.75 is horribly broken.  I hope there's a newer version.

Here's the problem.  Bison is translating this string, which appears
in parse.y:

        "\"address@hidden""

to the following, which appears in the generated y.tab.c:

        "\"\""

The question is what bison is doing with the `$@'.
