| Vim only uses $HOME, so that you can specify what home directory to
| use. So far I haven't seen a reason to do otherwise. Not having
| $HOME set is likely to cause trouble.
Although unfortunately, some of the Gnome stuff to which Vim links
ignores $HOME and only uses getpwuid, which means that the Vim build
process has to have write access to the real ~/.gnome2* when generating
the NLS things or running tests...
