Yes, the env is empty on UNIX-like systems, but I've heard it
reported here before that on Windows the env is not empty. I'd call
that a bug; Subversion should empty the env on Windows systems too,
to be consistent, and since the Book says the env is empty for
security reasons.

Can we agree that this is a bug? I couldn't find one filed in the
issue tracker.

I'm glad you got the problem resolved.
