Setting $HOME ?

I was running CygWin for a while and all was nice.
One day, I ran CygWin and it did not start me in the correct $HOME directory.
Checking env, both $HOME and $HOMEPATH are wrong. How are those set?

Manually setting the two in the cygwin.bat doesn't get it to run
%HOMEPATH%/.bashrc on login.

Changing the chdir in the batch file fixes $HOME but not $HOMEPATH and
also doesn't get .bashrc to run.

Tried `id -un` and checking etc/passwd. Looks right.

Any ideas?
