Bug report #17297
Overwriting environment variables with custom variables in Options -> System does not work
|Affected QGIS version:||master||Regression?:||Yes|

When one overwrites an environment variable that is defined on the system level with a custom variable defined by the user (in Menu Settings --> Options --> System --> Environment) the new value is picked up, but not correctly used.
Example: define variable PGSYSCONFDIR centrally on the system, overwrite it with a custom PGSYSCONFDIR variable on the user level. In the list of "Current environment variables" the new custom value correctly shows up, but the old value before overwriting is still used.

It is a regression. It worked fine on 2.18x
