I was almost certain that I had already fixed this. And it turned out I had. Locally, and then forgotten to actually get the fix pushed :)

This is almost exactly the same code I ended up with (although I only did it for LD_LIBRARY_PATH).

Looks good. Perhaps a short comment in the code explaining what’s going on?

Also, small nit: the spaces around the “pb” argument on the last line :)
