Right but I think the point is that the environment variable HOME does 
not exist on windows.  At least I have never seen it.  I think it does 
exist inside CYGWIN (perhaps in mingw also?) might the use of the HOME 
variable be related to the Cygwin port?

The standard env variables relevant to this conversation are the two I 
mentioned before (HOMEDRIVE, HOMEPATH) and the one mentioned above 
(USERPROFILE) which seems to be equivalent to HOMEDRIVE and HOMEPATH 
concatenated together.
