Sorry, I sort of assumed that Subversion _even on Windows_ would pay attention
to the environment variable HOME if it was available. I should have checked
before sending anything.



p.s. FWIW, I think that Subversion /should/ pay attention to HOME and only fall
back to the abomination that is %USERPROFILE% as a last resort. I can log into
multiple domains, so I have multiple %USERPROFILE% trees on a given box. I
would prefer to have a single shared %HOME% directory for all profiles, which
using the idiotic Win32 structure is impossible (or at least very difficult)
