in reply to %ENV setting not exported to child process?

I may be completely wrong, but isn't FreeBSD's pthreads actually the same process, so the child is actually seeing the same %ENV as perl itself ?

    Well, but system() and `...` aren't running in a new thread, they're forking off a new process. How would that be related to the threading model?

    The only way I can see this happening is that perl doesn't use setenv() if a certain threading model is enabled, similar to what's been described here.
