You could a batch file in etc\ini instead that sets PGSYSCONFDIR.  That will be
run before QGIS starts (I do that with NLS_LANG for Oracle sometimes) and
doesn't pollute the global enviroment.  Note that the change might not be
picked up if you run a pinned QGIS instead of starting it via the shortcut (you
need to run that at least once).

My guess is that PGSYSCONFDIR is set too late from the QGIS settings - ie.
after the first connection is attempted.
