Conditional Read statement

In a script I'm working on I want to check if a variable exists and, if not, prompt the user for a value, like this:

if (!$VAREXISTS(oobmgt_mask)) then
set var oobmgt_mask $READ(Mask:)

But the $READ statement is executed regardless of whether the variable exists or not, but if the variable exists, the value I enter does not get saved to the variable.
I've tested the if statement, and it correctly detects if the variable exists or not.

Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?

Edit: Perhaps I should mention that I'm running XOS on a Summit X350-48t.

Best regards

I've had this issue as well in, so you're not alone. (from pforristal)
