acquiring wrong home directory

The user's home directory seems to be enquired by calling getpwnam or getpwent.
This is a bug, cvs should rather use the value of $HOME.
While the values are usually identical, if they are not, this is deliberately 
Also, on cygwin systems, it is not unlikely that the values are different and 
the /etc/passwd listed home directory may not even exist.
