That's a sudo issue, since sudo runs the command and splits the args on
spaces. You need to either add extra backslashes (\\\ for every \), add
extra quoting (e.g. "'$DIRS'", which would only work for a single name),
or put the source args into a file and use --files-from (with an
explicit -r if you're expecting recursion).
