Submitted a patch for this: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-3359

> Jon is right. I am trying to ensure that each line is mostly parsed only
> once in https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-3204. Have few issues
> with other commands in pig script like fs, shell, cd, illustrate, error
> messages not showing line numbers properly, etc which I have not got to
> solving yet. Register and import command file localization should be done
> only once with my patch as the parsing happens only once (unless you have
> fs or sh commands). Will check it out to be doubly sure.
