When I change environment variable, I just reopen the terminal to have the new environment variable.

When I install the Rocket Dock, and drag & drop the terminal, the environment doesn't seem to change even after I change the variable and click the terminal button.

Why is this? Is there any way to solve this issue (forcefully applying the new environment variable)?

It's because Rocket Dock doesn't know about the new variable. Restart Rocket Dock.
