Thanks for the patch.  I'm just wondering if we shouldn't generalize
this right from the start by keeping an array of variables to skip
when starting native apps and a function to handle this, along the
lines of the getwinenv function and the conv_envvars array.
It might only contain TZ now, but there's always a chance we suddenly
stumble over a similar problem, isn't it?
