We setup stdin/out and the environment before we launch the  
interpreter (which is different for each invocation), and we use the  
return code from the interpreter, changing to a long-living  
interpreter would be rather problematic/challenging (and one command  
could easily pollute the environment).

This is clearly an OS problem that can easily be addressed either by  
the user or Apple.
