The current logic on Windows is:
 -- if HOMEDRIVE and HOMEPATH are defined, your homedir is $HOMEDRIVE+$HOMEPATH
 -- otherwise, error out and whine at the user
So, FYI, you seem to still have HOMEDRIVE and HOMEPATH defined to
C:/Documents and Settings/dalcolmo :-).  It would be nice to support
the others, though; what's the correct logic?  If USERPROFILE is set
use it; otherwise, if HOME is set, use it; otherwise, if HOMEDRIVE and
HOMEPATH are set, use them; otherwise, error out?

That's certainly doable, I'm just clueless about these baroque Windows
things, so I need clues from those who are familiar with them... is
the above description correct?
