Emacs 22, 23 do not always open on Win32

If I do not set the environment variable HOME, and if I have a file
called .emacs in C:\, neither Emacs 22 nor Emacs 23 will start.
Instead, I get a pop-up dialogue telling me of a "fatal error".

If I rename .emacs to _emacs, then both Emacs 22 and Emacs 23 run, but
neither acknowledges the existence of the file (I can tell because the
customizations are not read in).

If I set HOME to anything, *including* C:\, there is no problem
finding .emacs.

This was not a problem with Emacs 21.3.

In GNU Emacs (i386-mingw-nt5.1.2600) of 2006-04-22 on
YAMALOK X server distributor `Microsoft Corp.', version 5.1.2600

-mtune=i686 -lm -ffast-math -IC:/gnuwin32/include_emacs
