I looked in the code and it seems that Emacs doesn't apply
file-name-coding-system when expanding ~ to $HOME. Neither when you
interpolate $XXX environment variables in a file name. It just copies the
bytes. I think this is a bug. Please report it.

By the way, your posting contains 
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf8
That should be utf-8 (with the hyphen). Therefore your posting reads wrong.
