I haven't examined the source code to this, but on June 16, 2006,
gamr-14 at hotmail.com disclosed RFI vulnerabilities [1] in four Nucleus
scripts, all with the DIR_LIBS variable as the injection point. This was
subsequently proven to be a false report as the variable was previously
set and could not be manipulated by an attacker.

Have you actually tested this, or is this based on a quick grep of the
source code?
