Hmmm... It is difficult for me to debug this problem remotely so, if possible, try a couple of experiments. #1 Run the env command both as regular and root user. Are there differences in the Unix environments that stand out? #2 You mention that 2.9u1 did not have this issue. As a control experiment, please run the installer for 2.9u1 (http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/downloads/idv/2_9u1/index.jsp). Do you still see the problem?
