Please enter a FULL description of your problem:
------------------------------------------------

        The Pg perl module seems to be broken in following way:
It "eats" environment after the database is opened and $0 perl variable is set
to some value ( see the script below).



Please describe a way to repeat the problem.   Please try to provide a
concise reproducible example, if at all possible: 
----------------------------------------------------------------------

~ $ export | grep PG
declare -x PGDATABASE="test"
declare -x PGHOST="host"
declare -x PGLIB="/usr/local/pgsql/lib"
declare -x PGPASSWORD="passwd"
declare -x PGUSER="user"
~ $ perl -e 'use Pg; $dbconn = Pg::connectdb(""); $0 = "name";\
system("echo\$PGUSER:\$PGDATABASE");'
:
~/projects/TD/assist $

If you know how this problem might be fixed, list the solution below:
