Indeed. So the original problem still stands, i.e. that the widget considers itself the authoritative source of user environment changes (which I suppose makes some sense). Either that design will have to be changed, or you should not think of whatever changes you do as "user changes", but changes to the base environment, and use the respective functions.
(The EnvironmentAspect has a third category "modifiers", which are programmatic changes to the base environment. I suppose this matches what you are doing here).
