As I mentioned for me Mautilius does not pass the environment variable
on.  If fact My understanding is that NO application is supposed to pass
this environment variable on.

Now that probably includes Opera and its passing this environment variable
to its own sub-applications!

I would suggest you study the process ("ps -we") listings of the processes
involved and check if the sub-process actually still has that
environment variable set.
