Seems like a bug in the library if the following causes a buffer overflow when .emacs exists:

struct stat ignored;
stat ("C:/.emacs", &ignored);

There is a message about a problem with HOME on w32 on http://www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/wiki/EmacsW32 :

The symptom is “Error (initialization): User has no home directory” and no .emacs file loaded.

A quick kook at HOME env. var shows:

   (getenv "HOME") -> "Š,ûw"

I traced Emacs22 file access with NTFILMON
It would be more useful to use gdb.
