on nt 4.0 zsh will actually look for a $USERPROFILE directory. it  may be

If someone who has had to explicitly HOME (via the environment settings or
would send me a dump of their environment from a cmd.exe prompt, I'll
try to figure out what's going on.

of course, please make sure that $ZSH_VERSION is 3.0.5-nt-beta-0.50 (or
If  the version does not contain the "nt-beta.." part, then you are probably
a cygwin or u/win or interix zsh, not mine.
