    Is this actually necessary? It seems that #1345 indicates that the variables are already marked for export, and these additional export statements are not necessary.

    Right, what I didn't know: 'export' doesn't put the current value of a variable into the shell environment (and thus passes that to subshells), but only marks it to be passed down. Thus, one export is sufficient to always pass the current value down subshells.
