I vaguely remember this problem has been reported recently. I think the
source of the problem was the "-v VAR" is not interpreted correctly by qsub,
while "-v VAR=value" works.

I think a user even posted the fix.

About the assumption with the PATH variable you are right. PATH is a bad
candidate to be exported usually since the dot-file usually set and override
