Let's hope.  The changes I'm talking about were largely motivated by
Debian's reports, so I'd very much prefer not to overturn some of
those changes without understanding well enough what it does to Debian
and in particular making sure that Debian can still do what they need
even if some of those changes are reverted.

I don't think it crashes in that case.  It definitely shouldn't.  So
if you have a recipe where it does, please report it with the details.

However, that isn't directly related to the issue at hand, since I
don't expect anyone to point HOME to an invalid place as a means for
disabling native-compilation: we have much more direct means for that.

Will do.
