Not sure how the OP is becoming root, but if you simply su then the 
environment is inherited. This issue has come up in the past and we
actually had a note in the book to ensure the root user has these
vars set, but the note was removed after we split the unprivileged and
root tasks. Also the vars were exported so that they would be in the
su environment.

Seeing how this is still remaining to be an issue, we should put the
note back in the instructions. I believe the notes are simply commented
out of the XML right now, and should be easy to put back in.
