Next problem: empty ident <joern@limerick.(none)> not allowed

After successfully using a central object store with git://... instead
of rsync://... (thanks to Sam and Linus), I've run into the next
problem:

$ env | grep GIT
GIT_AUTHOR_NAME=Joern Engel
GIT_OBJECT_DIRECTORY=/home/joern/.git
GIT_AUTHOR_EMAIL=joern@wh.fh-wedel.de

$ git pull git://git.infradead.org/mtd-2.6.git
Unpacking 74 objects
 100% (74/74) done
Trying really trivial in-index merge...
Wonderful.
fatal: empty ident  <joern@limerick.(none)> not allowed

Adding this to .git/config solved the problem:
[user]
	name = "Joern Engel"
	email = "joern@foo.bar"


And now I have some questions:
1. Why didn't the environment variables work?
2. Why is there a check for commit information when I pull from some
tree?
