bug#11612: 24.1; Defaults create warning on startup

Oh, look at that, I do have a c:\.emacs file.

I did do a quick web search on this warning before sending the report,
and didn't get a description as good as the one you just emailed me.
Could the warning message "Setting HOME to C:\ by default is
deprecated" also include "Move .emacs out from C:\" or "See info ..."
to help us find the fix?

Thanks
