3363965 - Duplicate entries in PATH or LD_LIBRARY_PATH

Symptom

New entries were added to the PATH or LD_LIBRARY_PATH (LIBPATH, SHLIB_PATH) variables via .sapenv_hostname.csh or .sapenv.csh shell startup scripts in the sidadm user's home directory.

For example in the .sapenv*, the following is added at the end of the scripts to include the "/newdir" at the end of the variables:

setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH ${LD_LIBRARY_PATH}:/newdir
setenv PATH ${PATH}:/newdir

When checking the variables, they show as:

hostname:sidadm 54> echo $PATH
/usr/local/bin:/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/sap/SID/SYS/exe/uc/linuxx86_64:/usr/sap/SID/SYS/exe/run:/home/sidadm:/newdir:/newdir
hostname:sidadm 55> echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH
/usr/sap/SID/SYS/exe/run:/usr/sap/SID/SYS/exe/uc/linuxx86_64:/newedir:/oracle/client/19/instantclient:/newdir
