BASH script error "((: 08: value too great for base (error token is "08")"

((: 08: value too great for base (error token is "08")

Here is the code that caused it for ((track=1;track <= $number_of_tracks;track+=1));do

Also in each iteration "track" is padding with zeros using: track=`printf "%02d" $track`

It doesn't happen until you pass 8 to it, if you pass 1,2,3,4,5,6 or 7 it works fine. I read this is because it sees these numbers as octal numbers (it as in many progamming languages and also the BASHshell).
