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?

Isn't there lunset for this purpose?

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 :)

Oops, sorry, must've forgot that.
