I hope the attachment is not corrupted.

I tried your test case, and it worked for me, both with Make 3.80
the beta3 pretest of Make 3.81.  Both messages are displayed:

   Lower variables are accessible from a makefile.
   Uppercase variables are accessible from a makefile.

This is on Windows XP SP2.

What is your Windows version?  It's possible that your Windows shell
upcases environment variables (COMMAND.COM used to do that).

Im not sure I get the sense of your last sentence:(

My system is the same - Windows XP SP2 (with auto updates turned on).
I even performed the tests after a reboot and I got the same results -
only the second message is displayed.
Btw, I'm using a cygwin ( build of make. This is the
result of executing "make --version":
GNU Make 3.80

I then ran the test agains 3.81beta3 and it DID displayed all two messages as expected. One more question: Is version 3.81 expected to be released soon? If so, when?
