env is a command typically used in csh-like shells. With bash, you
can just say:

  ONE=one TWO=two echo_1_2

Under Linux, env works fine with both tcsh and bash.  I haven't tried
env with cygwin---I wasn't even aware of its inclusion---and right now
I have no access to my Win95 laptop. But it looks like a bug.
