Really? I'm hard-pressed to think of ways that you could use ~ or
$HOME that would then lead to the result of that expansion being
re-analyzed for further parameter expansion as well. It seems like
you'd have to go out of your way to make that be a problem.
But the workaround, if you have the privileges to do it, would be to
make a $-less symbolic link and change your passwd entry to match.
