Ok it is still the same as in b18, this breaks us, we rely on environment
variables to remain in the case they began in.

Is this something we can suggest in some way to be added in a future rev?


PS I've been on this mailing list and quite since just after b18 :)
   Mainly because we are still using a heavily modified b18, mostly bug
   that have been addressed in b20, except the environment..

I don't know the answer off the top of my head.  The actual code
involved is is in environ.cc.  I'd suggest that you look there and write
some simple test cases to supply you're own answer.
