Description:
This is a request from Webscale - https://github.com/webscalesql/webscalesql-5.6/commit/09fe0defc4d4add905a4c06be1f92b365f7a...
Jenkins sometimes puts an @ in the directory name.

With this value in "s, in perl, that is interpreted as a list, and fails.

With it in 's, it works fine.

How to repeat:
Changed 5.6 dir to 5@6, and mtr will fail

Suggested fix:
Use single quotes
