Would you like to try the latest Emacs release, 22.1,
and see if it has the same problem?

So, I have installed 22.1 and tried. With no HOME env var and an empty (but defined) HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\GNU\emacs\HOME registry key, emacs complains "A fatal error has occurred!" and gives the opportunity either to abort, which stops without error, or to continue inside GDB, which causes a Windows "crash" notification since I can't prepare it with gdb -p <emacs-PID> as advised (because I don't have GDB installed on Windows). The error report is:

AppName: emacs.exe
ModName: ntdll.dll
ModVer: 5.1.2600.2180
Offset: 00001230

Wouldn't it be desirable to just tell the user that they have misconfigured their HOME or to proceed without complaining ?
