Oh, I didn't think of this situation. How do you happen to run several
versions on the same account by the way?

Oops, I should fix that too.

You're probably true. I just have to think a bit more before I fix it. For
example, what would you expect texdoc to do if an old envvar name is used, and
not the corresponding new name, but the corresponding setting in texdoc.cnf? I
assume you don't want a warning in this case either?

Anyway, we're frozen for now, so I'll fix this in a few days.
