I was about to post a reply but Yuri already answered, so I'll only add
a pointer to an official reference about this topic:
Óscar, I get it that z:bla has a meaning. But is this meaning ever useful when for expanding "~/bla"?
I didn't say the change was "wrong".
I just asked, basically:
* if anyone had contemplated this particular problem on Windows;
* if it's possible to interpret HOME specially for this particular bit of backward compatibility without breaking the cases of bug#33255
