This isn't a problem with ut3, it's a feature of the shell you're using
(most likely bash). Just put the entire argument list in single quotes
(') and you should be fine.

Parenthesis and other characters let you do lots of cool things from the
command line that aren't possible in Windows, you just have to take care
to quote those characters properly when you're not using them to do
shell commands.
