?

Sorry, but that doesn't make any sense to me. If I define a variable in
the environment.plist file, and then log out and back in (that's a pain)
the variables are available.

The problem is when I try to embed a variable in the value of another
variable: 

SW_HOME /opt/comcast/software
GROOVY_HOME $SW_HOME/groovy/current

In the case above, SW_HOME doesn't resolve correctly in the GROOVY_HOME
variable. 

It doesn't seem like exporting is the problem.
