    What should we do?  Would it suffice to update the Emacs manual to say
    that the init file is looked for in the home directory of $USER
    instead of $HOME?

If you think the manual needs clarification, you're probably right.
However, isn't the node Find Init clear enough?

Perhaps the problem is that the node Init File makes a blanket statement
about using HOME, which in fact is true only in the usual case.
So that part could use rewriting.

Would you like to try it?
