I just came across a Solaris box and found the cause for the problem. Its 
fixed in CVS HEAD now. FYI on Solaris you cannot free() memory that you 
previously handed to putenv(), really weird, cause the man page tells me that 
putenv() on solaris manages the environment using malloc() itself. 
Nevertheless it works now.
