It's a bug only if the implementation deviates from the specification.
In this case, it does not. The behavior is intentional: python
deliberately drops environment variables it cannot represent as a
string. We know that such environment variables can happen in real
life - that's why they get dropped (rather than raising an exception
at startup).
