    ****************************************************************
    When running in an interactive cleartool shell, after
    executing a cleartool command that modifies ClearCase
    environment variables, and then executing a shell command
    (!), there are some ClearCase environment variables that
    remain set in the new shell environment, which may affect
    future Cleartool commands.
