When you set LC_ALL=C you "misconfigure" the environment. The shell
is still running in the original locale, so the calls to getenv will
bring you the original non-ASCII characters. (Or are you saying that
Posix systems will somehow convert the value of, say, PATH to adpat it
to the C locale? Windows does such things, but I thought Posix
When Emacs starts, it gets the values of various coding-systems,
including the one used for DECODE_SYSTEM, from the locale's codeset.
If you set LC_ALL=C, what will you get in locale-coding-system after
startup? I don't think it will be your shell's codeset, will it?
