it would not change it.  when the condor_master receives the reconfig command,
the user's environment variable has no impact on the condor_master, and it
reads the condor_config from the same place it did before.  its environment is
separate from an arbitrary user's.

Thanks ! I'll sleep much sounder knowing that.

All the best
