Dustin Cote commented on YARN-2369:
-----------------------------------

I don't see a unit test suite dealing with env variables already, so I'm not 
sure it makes sense to make a unit test for this.  I don't have a better 
solution than above, so I'm sticking with the submitted patch unless I hear 
otherwise in a review.

> Environment variable handling assumes values should be appended

> When processing environment variables for a container context the code 
> assumes that the value should be appended to any pre-existing value in the 
> environment.  This may be desired behavior for handling path-like environment 
> variables such as PATH, LD_LIBRARY_PATH, CLASSPATH, etc. but it is a 
> non-intuitive and harmful way to handle any variable that does not have 
> path-like semantics.
