gsubprocess: Copy parent process’ environ when clearing subprocess’

Previously, this was done at the time of spawning the subprocess, which
meant the g_subprocess_launcher_*_environ() functions could not be used
to modify the parent process’ environment.

Change the code to copy the parent process’ environment when
g_subprocess_launcher_set_environ(NULL) is called. Document the change
and add a unit test.
