When you 'source' a file, it is interpreted in the context of the current
process. If you execute it (with ./env_gate.sh), it is run in a child process.
Environment variables are inherited from parent to child, but not from child
to parent.

> Why don't you use just ./env_gate.sh instead of source env_gate.sh...?
