Indeed, and Peter Dyballa made the same point on

I argue that as BASH_ENV is set in ~/.emacs, and not elsewhere, it can
only potentially cause problems with scripts/commands called/issued from
inside Emacs, i.e., cron/at jobs are unaffected.

But yes, if people are at all worried they should use my functions
(interactive-shell-command and asynchronous-interactive-shell-command)
rather than setting BASH_ENV.
