Version: CYGWIN_NT-5.0 -- 1.5.12(0.116/4/2) -- i686 unknown unknown Cygwin
I set the TERM environment variable in my application by calling
setenv(). A subsequent call to getenv("TERM") yields the expected value.
However, after performing a fork(), the call to getenv("TERM") returns
"cygwin". This is the case for both the parent and the child.
