I don't know luaL_loadstring --- do you mean luaL_loadbuffer? If so, it
shouldn't add anything to the environment (AFAIR) until the chunk that's
returned is actually executed.

OTOH, if you meant luaL_dostring, then that'll compile and then execute the
chunk, so yes, it'll modify its environment, which defaults to the global one.
But if you just want to do a syntax check you probably don't want to do this
(because the chunk may have side effects).

Alternatively, I could be completely misunderstanding you...
