Description of problem:
The environment variables set by the "debugmode" package are not exported (at least in bash), so the only processes that receive the benefits of debug mode are interactive shells. The variables should be exported.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make sure the "debugmode" package is installed and enabled.
2. env | grep -e MALLOC_ -e G_SLICE
Expected results (example):
Created attachment 412323 [details]
export environment variables in debugmode
/etc/profile.d/debug.sh: export all non-comment lines instead of sourcing /etc/sysconfig/debug
Gah, more sed mess. Maybe the design should be fixed first (I entered bug 590063).

(debug.csh was set up to handle this already.)
