I've had odd failures with $ENV set because it's pointing at a file
containing zsh-isms, for what it's worth.  This shows up readily:

2 at pyanfar:9028 Z$ /bin/sh
Syntax error: Bad substitution

(Aside:  I consider this obnoxious, as "sh -x" reveals it's in a chunk
of code that only executes if $ZSH_VERSION is set; there are various
zsh- and bash-isms in there which are conditionalized for zsh and bash,
but when this change crept in it became impossible to conditionalize
that way without evaling single-quoted blocks.)
