I was affected by this issue. Two hours lost trying to figure out what
the problem was an how to work around it.

There are bug reports all around about other cross-platform projects
which found the same problem. Python, for instance, uppercases all
environment variables on Windows.

Emacs should follow the conventions of the host OS.
