[gdal-dev] When does the env var GDAL_DATA get processed?

I have an application that programatically sets the GDAL_DATA
environment variable. However, when I do this I get errors complaining
that it can't find GDAL_DATA. When I use an application like process
explorer to see the environment of the process I see that I am correctly
setting the environment variable to what I want. If I run the
application from a batch file that "sets" the env var before running the
application then things work.
Because I can see from process explorer that I'm correctly setting the
env var for the process, I am left to believe that some dll get's loaded
and the GDAL_DATA env var is used before my code gets a chance to set
it. Is this possible? When/ where does the value of the env var
GDAL_DATA get used?
