This was found in 4.1-fixes, but that's not a valid target in Bugzilla.

I've been having occasional segfaults when Moab is trying to 'qsub' a job as
the user.  Loading the core file in GDB, it appears that envp has strings that
don't contain an '=' sign.  This should never happen, but Moab is using
something like execve to manually set the environment.  I'm going to file a bug
with the Moab guys, but TORQUE should protect itself from this situation.

The attached patch simply ignores environment strings that don't have an '='
sign.  It compiles clean, but I haven't had a chance to fully test it yet. I
set the this situation to return PBSE_BAD_PARAMETER. Not sure if that's the
best code here, but it doesn't look like any calling functions actually use the
return code.
