In my Emacs, under debian, M-x setenv certainly seems to affect the
"Emacs environment" that the user sees.

In particular, doing (setenv "foo" ...) allows $foo to be used when
visiting files (i.e. substitute-in-file-name sees it), and doing
(setenv "HOME" ...) changes how expand-file-name expands a tilde.

If this doesn't happen in windows, it seems like a bug...
