That's expected things do not work this way. You have to actually set
the xsetting instead of using the environment variable.
There is a gesettings key in org.gnome.desktop.interface called
"scale-factor" try setting this one to "2"

Ah, great -- here's how I got it working:

* remove the manual GDK_SCALE and CLUTTER_SCALE settings from environment
* $ gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface scaling-factor 2
* restart

It initially shows everything incorrectly just pixel-doubled, but after restarting and logging back in fresh, gnome-shell displays correctly at high resolution.
