Unruh's decode of the broken email was correct.  What is being shown is 
not just the command, but the command and the prompt, or at least 
hopefully that is the case (the questioner could have seen documentation 
with that intent and actually typed the whole thing at the shell prompt).

I realised that the & g t ;, etc. was the result of broken HTML email 
software, but trying to decode it in my head I sawe a redirect operator

Only when I saw Unruh's decode was it obvious that it was actually part 
of the prompt.
