more fun.  I just checked the environment of the postmaster service on a 
win2000 Pro system (using www.sysinternals.com's excellent Process Explorer 
tool, btw).   HOME is not set.  USERPROFILE is set to "C:\Documents and 
Settings\postgres"...

For services that are running as 'NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM', the profile is 
"C:\Documents and Settings\Default User" (and the USERDOMAIN and USERNAME 
aren't set at all)...
