Node environment variables not recursively expanded

      Description

      A user reported a problem whereby a script

      node('some-slave') {
        sh 'echo hello'
      }
      

      would fail, claiming the shell interpreter could not be found. In fact

      echo env.PATH
      

      revealed a mangled path like

      /usr/local/bin:$PATH:$SOME_TOOL/bin
      

      with various unexpanded variables. The node in question had the custom environment variable property set, where in particular PATH was set to an expression involving $PATH as well as various other sister properties.

      Freestyle projects were building without problem on this node, so it seems that the Workflow node step was failing to expand variable references picked up from the custom property.

            Is this a duplicate of JENKINS-20001? Is this a really old issue that crops up sometimes?

            No, this is about Pipeline builds, which use a rather different code path.

            Worked for me using software at the time this was filed. JENKINS-41339 covers a regression.
