           Summary: System.Diagnostics.ProcessStartInfo environment
                    variable sticky between process invocations
    Classification: Mono
           Product: Mono: Class Libraries
           Version: 2.10.x
          Platform: x86-64

            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P5 - None
         Component: System

           Blocker: Yes

Description of Problem:

using different instances of System.Diagnostics.ProcessStartInfo with different
environment variable settings doesn't work. In other words, with
ProcessStartInfo environment variable set to different values has no effect
between Process invocations (i.e. Process.Start(startInfo)). 

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. produce 2 instances of ProcessStartInfo, say with
processStartInfo1.EnvironmentVariables["Display"] = ":10"
processStartInfo2.EnvironmentVariables["Display"] = ":11"

2. Using the above example, 

Actual Results:

both processes will point to the same DISPLAY because the environments for both
processes say DISPLAY=:10

Expected Results:
process1's enviroment variable value for DISPLAY should be :10
process2's environment variable value for DISPLAY should be :11

How often does this happen? 

Consistently, everytime

Additional Information:
In addition to the environment variable, the following items were also set
during test conditions:

            processStartInfo1 = new ProcessStartInfo(appName, appArgs);
            processStartInfo1.WorkingDirectory = appDir;
            processStartInfo1.RedirectStandardInput = true;
            processStartInfo1.RedirectStandardOutput = true;
            processStartInfo1.RedirectStandardError = true;
            processStartInfo1.UseShellExecute = false;


            processStartInfo2 = new ProcessStartInfo(appName, appArgs);
            processStartInfo2.WorkingDirectory = appDir;
            processStartInfo2.RedirectStandardInput = true;
            processStartInfo2.RedirectStandardOutput = true;
            processStartInfo2.RedirectStandardError = true;
            processStartInfo2.UseShellExecute = false;
