I suppose this could be a side-effect of the way our IT department sets up
NT. But I shudder to think how or what really causes it.

Thanks for the response. Unfortunately, this doesn't help. :( I tried
exact, all upper, and all lower case to the same result.
I've developed a workaround for posixmodule which uses getenv() under
Windows instead of direct access to environ. It works great. I had
really hoped others experienced this problem. Sigh. I will send my patch
to Guido anyway. Maybe it will be deemed worthy.
