cygcheck.exe: duplicate path and other entries when run from an SSH session

When I run `cygcheck -s -v -r > cygcheck.out` when connecting via SSH, the resulting file shows a duplicate path entry as well as other duplicate entries.

Steps to reproduce:

- Locally in a Cygwin Terminal, run: `cygcheck -s -v -r > cygcheck1.out`
- Connect via SSH to the machine with Cygwin installed: `ssh user@cygwinbox`
- In the SSH session: run `cygcheck -s -v -r > cygcheck2.out`
- Compare: `diff -u cygcheck{1,2}.out`

A snippet of the output from `diff -u cygcheck{1,2}.out` on my system:

--- cygcheck1.out       2016-05-27 19:52:12.442102521 +0200
+++ cygcheck2.out       2016-05-27 19:52:12.525435198 +0200

As an aside: it would be nice if the list of environment variables in cygcheck output were sorted, this makes it easier to spot differences between runs.

Kind regards,
