The environment variables are properly exported. I verified this by
adding 'echo $GIT_WORK_TREE; echo $GIT_DIR' at the top of git-stash.sh.
So these should propagate to "child gits" just fine, and so it shouldn't
be necessary to test them explicitly.

The problem seems to be that git rev-parse --is-inside-work-tree does
not honor these. In fact it doesn't even honor --git-dir or --work-tree.
Judging by the name this may be intentional.

In the mean time, if you are able to use Git 1.8.5, `git -C test-repo
stash` will work just fine.
