 This is a known problem (thought there was another PR about it... can't
 find it right now) related to the use of a "-" in a variable name.  Some
 shells do not accept that.  It needs to be changed in the Apache code.  A
 temporary workaround would be to use a replacement shell that supports it
 (eg. bash), however this can only be changed by recompiling Apache with
 the SHELL_PATH define changed.
