Backslashes are not correctly reduced when in environment var with substituted value

      Description

      Using jenkins pipeline, I have found that an environment property that takes variable substitution (see example below) doesn't get it's backslashes correctly reduced. I would have expected that both keys below start with "a\b". Instead, AAA_Key1 becomes "a
      b 0", while AAA_Key2 becomes "a\b".

       

      Example script

      pipeline {
          agent any
          stages {
              stage('Build') {
                  environment {
                      AAA_Key1 = "a\\b ${EXECUTOR_NUMBER}"
                      AAA_Key2 = "a\\b"
                  }
                  steps {
                      bat 'set'
                  }
              }
          }
      }

      Current Output

      c:\w\Pipeline Experimental\default>set
      AAA_Key1=a\\b 0
      AAA_Key2=a\b
      

      Current workaround is to use withEnv directly, which doesn't appear to suffer from this issue

            Again, this is fixed along the way in JENKINS-42753, I've added a test verifying this to the relevant PR, and it'll be included in Declarative 1.2.
