Environment variables set by /env/bin/init disappear when script exits

Since commit 90df2a955e3c ("defaultenv: Convert init script to C"), if 
the legacy /env/bin/init script is still being used, any environment 
variables that were set in the script (such as the PS1 prompt) disappear 
when the script exits.  I guess it is because the script is now run 
directly by run_command(initfile) (initfile is "/env/bin/init") rather 
than by run_command("source /env/bin/init").
