[Condor-users] Environment problems in submit files

Dear all,

We are using Windows XP computing farm with the Linux server and
some users also find it convenient to submit windows binaries
from the Linux box. And it used to work just fine until the Linux submit box

was upgraded from 6.6.8 to 6.7.7 version.
The problem emerged that the following line in submit file - very convenient

way to set up the job environment - 

environment = path=c:\cygwin\bin;c:\windows;c:\windows\system32

- is no longer accepted. The semicolon (;) is treated as a field
separator character and is not escapable in any standard way I tried.

In the manual it is said indeed, that the (;) is a field separator
when submitting from UNIX boxes, while windows compute nodes require
semicolon as a path separator.

Is there any way to insert character (;) into environment variable
or to tell condor_submit which character to use as a field separator instead
