According to http://cygwin.com/faq/faq.setup.html#faq.setup.home if not
set in the Windows environment then the entry in /etc/password should be
used. Where is this accomplished? Because I'm not seeing it happen.
Instead /etc/profile is invoked and HOME is set to nothing and
/etc/profile tries to create a directory of no name and fails.
