Calling putenv causes access fault (reference to location 0).
newlib putenv doesn't appear to work when environ==NULL.

CVS trunk, newlib-1.11.0, rtems newlib patch 20030614

Likely all host/target combinations

My present work-around is to add the following at the beginning of my application startup task:

     * Work around newlib bug
    if (environ == NULL) {
        static char *dummy = NULL;
        environ = &dummy;

The real fix would be to set envirion to a non-NULL value as part of the RTEMS startup sequence, or to fix newlib so that a NULL environ does not break things.
