Did you try the script on one of those shells?  Here it is again.  If
it doesn't print "hello", what is the output of "sh -x script?

readonly ENV
for as_var in ENV MAIL MAILPATH
do ($as_unset $as_var) >/dev/null 2>&1 && $as_unset $as_var
echo "hello"

But the script doesn't do that; it does something more complicated
than that.

The message is being hidden, but the exit status is being followed.
Or are you saying that the exit status of "(unset ENV)" is zero?
