Should be fixed as of today since we pushed out tlcritical to tlnet, so
every new installation should automatically react to the env var.

You mean tlmgr gui? But then installation would fail, which is not good
either. And we would have to add an additional option for the installer,
which is also not really what we want.

Or do yo suggest that the tlmgr gui has an option to globally set this
env-var? I am not really sure that I understand what you propose.
