Sorry, that was wrong.  (It's been a while since I researched this
problem, so I forgot the details.)  You need to make sure both USER
and USERNAME environment variables are set to the same value.  Windows
sets USERNAME, so if you want to keep that, make sure USER is set to
the same value.  If you don't want to set USER globally, you can do it
in the [emacs] section of your djgpp.env file.

Again, I should have said "setting USER".
