Re: unison doesn't honor HOME when USERPROFILE is set, also permission/uid/gid problems when synchronizing

As I told you above. It uses $UNISON also in my case.

Probably this part from takes precedence then:

(*                           UNISON DIRECTORY                                *)

(* Gives the fspath of the archive directory on the machine, depending on    *)
(* which OS we use                                                           *)
let unisonDir =
  try Fspath.canonize (Some (Unix.getenv "UNISON"))
  with Not_found ->
    let genericName = Util.fileInHomeDir (Printf.sprintf ".%s" Uutil.myName) in
    if Osx.isMacOSX then
      let osxName = Util.fileInHomeDir "Library/Application Support/Unison" in
      if Sys.file_exists genericName then Fspath.canonize (Some genericName)
      else Fspath.canonize (Some osxName)
      Fspath.canonize (Some genericName)

(* build a fspath representing an archive child path whose name is given

So the first part of my patch seems ok:
