Hi Ignacio,

I'm glad you got things to work.

Make sure that you properly escape any strings you include here, in case you
do not hardcode it...

I'm not quite sure this is a good thing to do. Not inheriting the standard
environment may cause serious issues, like not being able to find programs
in custom paths, not being able to use the X display, or not being able to
use the DBus session bus, among many other things.
