Launching from Finder or other LaunchServices method? It has no effect when launching from the command line.

Is it sandboxed? I don't know if sandboxing has an effect on LSEnvironment, but I suspect it might considering it's been exploited to infect machines with trojans (via DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES).

What are you ultimately trying to accomplish?
