Bug#198887: emacs21: envvars not being inherited everywhere

From: Arnaud Vandyck

Package: emacs21
Version: 21.2-6
Severity: normal

Describing  the problem  at address@hidden,  Kai  Gro├čjohann and
Stefan  Monnier suggested  me to  fill  a bug.  They also  helped me  to
describe it:

    I put "export CVS_RSH=ssh" into the file ~/.foo.  Then I log in
    via kdm/gdm/xdm and start a shell.  Typing "echo $CVS_RSH" into
    that shell gives me ssh.  Good.  I invoke Emacs from that shell.
    Typing M-: (getenv "CVS_RSH") RET into that Emacs gives me ssh.
    Good.  I invoke Emacs from the menu.  Now typing M-: (getenv
    "CVS_RSH") RET gives me nil.  Bad.
Best regards,
