When submitting a MapReduce job using Hue Oozie, the job properties do not get reflected in the workflow.xml.  This causes the job to fail with the following error:

Failing Oozie Launcher, Main class [org.apache.oozie.action.hadoop.MapReduceMain], main() threw exception, Output directory not set in JobConf.
org.apache.hadoop.mapred.InvalidJobConfException: Output directory not set in JobConf.

The same MR job runs fine from command line.
