I have %WINDIR% and other environment variables in _my_ path as well. The
svnpath program does not _write_ the %SystemRoot% value to the registry, it
writes the %ENV_VARIABLES% itself as clean text back to the registry. That's
why I don't use REG_EXPAND_SZ when writing the path back to the registry.

The program is tested on all the NT flavors by many people, so I really want
to know what's going on here. The problem is that I can't fix/check it where
I'm now, but the svnpath source code consists of very small subs so it
should be easy to see how it works.

I have started to port the svnpath to pascal because a VB program does not
belong in a Windows installer like this. Win95 users may not have the VB5
run time files.
