I missed this particular "solution" to this problem.
Who is actually using this "OS" environment variable? Cygwin certainly
isn't using it. Is the X Server using it? If so, it is not a very
reliable method for determining OS type.
Apologies if this has all already been explained. Feel free to ignore
