bug#8331: UNIX Environment variables get lost in ver23.3 as opposed to 23.2

Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/24.0.50 (gnu/linux)

Depending on how the `emacs' process is started w.r.t the shell process
where you set the env-var, this is perfectly normal. So please show us
the *exact* way you set the env var, and the *exact* way you then "open
a file in Emacs".
