I've seen similar errors on starting the zshell also.

/etc/zsh/zshrc:[:816: too many arguments
/home/moss/.zshrc.global:[:773: too many arguments

cat -n /etc/zsh/zshrc | grep -C5 ' 816'
   811         get_3ware
   812       }
   813    fi
   815  # I hate lacking backward compability, so provide an alternative therefore
   816    if ! [ -x $(which apache2-ssl-certificate) ] ; then
   817     function apache2-ssl-certificate(){
   819       print 'Debian does not ship apache2-ssl-certificate anymore (see #398520). :('
   820       print 'You might want to take a look at Debian the package ssl-cert as well.'
   821       print 'To generate a certificate for use with apache2 follow the instructions:'
