Have you tried creating a test .bashrc that doesn't
set them in the first place?

So I have a Perl script that works perfectly when run from my login, but it
bitterly when run in cron where it can't find stuff like FlexLM and Oracle.

Is there an easy means of (temporarily) nuking PATH, LD_LIBRARY_PATH,
and all the other assumed variables within an xterm? That is, easier than
writing another script
to un-set and re-set them?
