Thanks for this report.  Note that Parallel Harness was enabled by default in
automake.  This usage of TEST_ENVIRONMENT, according to automake
documentation, is correct only for Serial Harness.  Thus (if you really want
to use this feature), you should enable serial-tests option in configure.ac:
AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE([foreign serial-tests]).

For more info, look at 'info automake', chapter 15.2.2 Older (and discouraged)
serial test harness
