Thank you for the analysis.  I am wondering, though ... WHY does xlbiff
set HOME to '' for this test?

(I am neutral on whether or not this is technically a regression; I can
see it both ways.  Alexander does point out that HOME is supposed to be
valid according to POSIX, but I am not 100% that means it can't be a
zero-length string).
