We should probably start a campaign in Debian to have all init scripts
sanitize the environment of daemons they start.
I usually run initscripts using "env -i /etc/init.d/$foo start" to
achieve exactly that, but ideally the init script itself would do that.
Maybe start-stop-daemon should have an option to delete all but a
specified set of environment variables, maybe even enabled by default.
