Sorry, I easily used with-environment-variable*s* because the interface
looked convenient, but perhaps I should have used
with-environment-variable defined in guix/tests.scm.
However, using this one does not seem to solve the problem. Should I
modify with-environment-variable*s*?

Thank you. I will modify it in one of the ways you suggested.

I did not understand the optimization behavior. Thank you very much.
