Are you logged into a domain? In that case, your home drive is set as part
of your network login, which is why you don't see it in the environment
variables. You should probably use method #2 in the FAQ entry: edit the path
to your home dir directly in /etc/passwd; that way your windows login can keep
its own value of HOME, but you can have a different one in cygwin.
You *will* have to use a proper POSIX path format for this, however; it's
only if HOME is passed in from windows when cygwin starts up that it can be
automatically converted for you from windows-style.
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
