I wonder if this is the problem, that the output of your mminfo command is 
exceeding the limits of your shell to pass in arguements?  Have you tried 
re-working the script to generate a list of ssids and to feed them one at 
a time to nsrclone instead?  Or in bunches of 10-20 instead of however 
many you get now with the mminfo output?
