Sadly no, otherwise when the top level needs to start the environment
for a test that explicitly uses it, it gets set up again.  

I guess you are saying that the target should notice during the re-setup
that the env is running.  For some reason that doesn't work - perhaps
your eyes can spot that better than I could.  'for some reason' probably
isn't a good enough excuse for this level of code change however...
