Undefined variable is treated as string.

Key: HADOOP-6100
URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-6100
Project: Hadoop Common
Issue Type: Bug
Components: mapred
Affects Versions: 0.20.0
Reporter: Suman Sehgal
Priority: Minor

This issue is related to HADOOP-2838.
For X=$X:Y : Append Y to X (which should be taken from the tasktracker) , if we append to an undefined variable then value for undefined variable should be displayed as blank
e.g. NEW_PATH=$NEW_PATH2:/tmp should be displayed as
":/tmp" in child's environment
while that variable is being displayed as a string ("$NEW_PATH2:/tmp") in the environemnt.

This is happening in case of default task-controller only. This scenario works fine with linux task-controller.
