on loader prompt works.

The problem is local vs kernel env variables:
set / unset works on kernel env variables only;
this can have the effect that a variable has an instance
both as local and kernel env variable, but with different value.

IMO set / unset should also do operation on local variable.
Any objections?

Local variables was introduced by dloader, mainly to store menu stuff,
which the kernel has no use for.

I did update loader docs (man & help file) after dloader introduction,
so I think it is in a rather good shape :)
