confirmed, my hello world workflow now works, thanks!

I see, the new approach sounds robust to me. Just one question: If I
read the commit right, lib-guix is started as a second process using
system*. Isn't it possible to exec into lib-guix? If I understand the
problem correctly, the host-guix process isn't really required anymore
and can be replaced with lib-guix?

Thanks for fixing the issue & best regards,
