It looks plausible.  "forked" is a local variable in execcmd() saying we
forked to execute whatever it is, so it indicates the variable can't
leak from the current command context.  ADVAR_RESTORE is only a signal
to quieten the warning (it could be better named; the name comes from
the other time it's set rather than it's real purpose).  So it certainly
looks better than before.
