msys.bat overrides %HOME%

Reported by: maphew Owned by: osgeo4w-dev@…
Priority: major Component: Package
Version: Keywords: msys


etc/ini/msys.bat overrides the HOME variable. HOME often doesn't exist on Windows machines, it is not a system default, but if a user does define one s/he may be perplexed if they don't notice msys change it. The fix, to only set home if not defined, is simple:

if not defined HOME set HOME=%USERPROFILE%

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

There isn't a pkg page for msys, and thus no maintainer to contact, so I went ahead and applied the changes to release package system as msys-1.0.11-3.tar.bz2. I hope I didn't step on anyone's toes.
