 `etc/ini/msys.bat` overrides the HOME variable. HOME often doesn't exist
 on Windows machines, it is not a system default, but if a user does define
 one s/he may be perplexed if they don't notice msys change it. The fix, to
 only set home if not defined, is simple:
 if not defined HOME set HOME=%USERPROFILE%
