Wait, wait, step back... this in itself sounds like a problem.
'export COLUMNS' is needed for 'printenv COLUMNS' to work,
since in the printenv case you need the variable to be
transferred to the child printenv process.
Ok, that makes sense, although my understanding is that if the child
process is 'bash' (including a script run by bash), then it will have a
non-exported copy of the var set correctly. Or rather, it would/should
if this was working at all.
