Curiously enough, there were a few instances of the correct "set and
export environment explicitly during the life of subshell" construct
already in the script. I found only this one as problematic.
Does it fix your issue without your change?
It is a separate issue to port git-remote-testgit to POSIX (J6t
already has a two part draft), move it to git-remote-testgit.sh, and
get its shebang line preprocessed like all other shell scripts. I
think it is worth doing.
