This is the hint about what is wrong. What is passed ($1) to the  
script is the full name (including the .tex or .ltx extension ---  
since either extension is valid!) so you've got to strip it out. Try  

basefname=$(basename "$1" .tex)
pdflatex --shell-escape "$1"
makeindex -c -s indexkorr.ist "${basefname}".idx
pdflatex --shell-escape "$1"

which may be a bit different if you use tcsh. Note that you don't  
have to set the path since it is set correctly before the script is  

Good Luck,
