Well, you just managed to confue this poor user by talking about HOME
and .subversion, neither of which are relevant on Windows...

To be more precise, your %USERPROFILE% directory, and hence your
%APPDATA%, are on a network drive that isn't accessible when you're not
at the office. It's a wonder you can get anything done at home, because
lots of programs besides Subversion use those directories.

I'll agree with that.
