Steps To Reproduce

Run this code in singleplayer or just in editor's console:

doStuff = { 
diag_log str _a; 
}; 
 
_a = 123; 
remoteExecCall ["doStuff"];

"123" will be printed in the .rpt file.
If you run the same in a multiplayer session, _a will be undefined in the doStuff function, as expected.
If you replace remoteExecCall with remoteExec, it also works as expected (variable _a is not defined).

Additional Information

It can lead to unexpected behavior of functions that are meant to work both in SP and MP, adding complexity to multiplayer scenario debugging.
Obviously one would expect a remoteExecCall'ed function to be always run in a 'clear' environment.
