Those are two different files -- the first is archive/zip_logs.ksh, the
second is zip_logs.ksh.  The -l option prevents recursion, but if you
explicitly specify a directory on the command line, it still gets
processed, and "*" includes directories as well as files.  If you just
want the files in the current directory, you should specify "." rather
than "*" (or just don't specify any names at all since that is the
default).
