property 'plexus.system.path' is being set to empty and results in maven, m2 and ant executables
to be unresolved
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

         Key: CONTINUUM-303
         URL: http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/CONTINUUM-303
     Project: Continuum
        Type: Bug
 Environment: Windows XP, Continuum SVN snapshot, Maven 2 SVN snapshot
 Reporter: Rahul Thakur


ok, I have been noticing build failures on Integration tests for sometime now. On playing
around with the PATH variables and looking at plexus DefaultExecutableResolver source, i noticed
the following: 

a) plexus.system.path was being set to '' (empty string) on my system even though the PATH
is set to include all reqd. executables. The PATH variable had values with space (ex: c:\Program
Files\...)

b) On running integ. tests with -Dplexus.system.path=%PATH% set on command line,  the spaces
in the path variable were not being handled correctly, seems like the 'path list' used to
resolve executables is being set up incorrectly. I am not sure if this is better reported
as an issue on Plexus JIRA or here. 

c) on running integ. tests with -Dplexus.system.path="%PATH%", the path list is being build
up properly and executables are getting resolved. Not sure where this property is being set
up in first place. In case, this being setup  and passed via build script, would it be a good
idea to have double quotes around PATH?
