Of course, we would like to have a regression test. Can anyone help
me write one? I took a quick look in
subversion/tests/libsvn_subr/auth-test.c for inspiration and am a bit
lost where to start at that level.

If we go for a 'proper' fix, we could write a unit test for
svn_user_get_homedir(), which would be much easier than a regression
test for the authentication scenario with GPG-agent.
