OK, so I can't reproduce this easily with Emacs.app, that is, with a
vanilla build of Emacs 23.1 (or its CVS branch that is, NextStep port).
I can reproduce it with Aquamacs 2.0-series.
How do you reproduce? Where do you set these env vars, in Emacs with
setenv, or in the login shell, or in the parent process that starts
Emacs (e.g., Terminal/shell)?
