spawn is part of the GUI, so it shares the same environment with the
rest of the GUI.

I'm not sure why putting the setting in guarantee_xmon wouldn't work,
unless the "global env" was overlooked (if you forget that, you're
modifying a local variable named "env" rather than the actual
environment which is passed on to child processes).
