Hello Diogo,

I do think this is a limitation in the way the variables are inserted in 
the inventory, it seems the script running the inventory is not trying 
to get variables from the /etc/profile system.

I'll test a fix to remove this limitation and come back to you when it's 
working !

In the meantime, I created a ticket to trace the issue:
