You'll need a radius (r=#) within the parameters, otherwise it will take all players anywhere (which is sad that this would happen, but that's how it works unfortunately). Unless something else is wrong.
Yep. I'm having the same problems too. For some reason, command blocks aren't working good in 1.7.2. The only command that works for me is /say blah blah blah. I guess its a bug that Mojang will fix soon. Good Luck though.
The numbers in the brackets are the source radius and the search radius, and the numbers after the brackets are the destination. So that can be read as "Teleport any player within a 1-block radius of 1,1,1 to 4,4,4."
I, personally, prefer to use a slightly larger search radius and @p to target the nearest player to account for players not standing exactly where I want them to. So, if I were using the same coordinates as the above example, I'd type:
tp @p[1,1,1,2] 4 4 4
Finally, don't forget to use a redstone signal to activate the command block. If you want an automatic activation, you should use a clock signal.

/tp @p[1,1,1,0] 4 4 4
Enter "0" as the radius to ONLY select that exact coordinate. Entering "1" will make a cuboid 1 away in every direction from the coordinate (3x3 block around it) and 2 would be 2 away in every direction (5x5 block around the coordinate).
In this particular command, "x=" "y=" "z=" and "r=" is not needed, though it will work perfectly fine with them in there.
"/tp @p[1,1,1,0] 4 4 4" is the same as "/tp @p[x=1,y=1,z=1,r=0] 4 4 4"
