bug#8220: 24.0.50; (On Windows XP) "c:\_emacs" isn't found during startup

1.- Set up a Windows XP system in such way that Emacs, during its
statup, can't find any possible "init file" (.emacs, .emacs.el,
.init.el, ...) in any of the possible paths it may look for (see ).
2.- Create a brand new emacs init file with the single sentence (setq
inhibit-startup-screen t), and save it as "c:\_emacs".
3.- Start emacs "normally" (whithout -Q, because we want to test the
search of our init file).
According to , Emacs should be able to find (and execute) the init file
created in #2, i.e., the statup screen should NOT be shown. But in fact
it is, i.e., Emacs could not find the file.
