set_initial_environment only initializes Vprocess_environment if
`initialized' is set.

The ugly hack only sets `initialized' when not dumping, so that if you
run temacs without dumping Vprocess_environment gets initialized.
If Vprocess_environment is not initialized (getenv "HOME") returns
nil, any many things go bad from there.
