Hm, I thought setting the HOME/USER environment variables in System/Advanced/Env works ? (only have Win2000 German ... ;-)

We could also make b) the default for Windows ? (GNUSTEP_USER_ROOT isn't
in HOME, but rather in a subdir of GNUstep ...) Defaults should
autocreate the /Users/$USER dir on access.

Yes ... but we'd need to strip any spaces from $USER first of course, since
windows usernames are sometimes things like a persons full name.

Yep. Just strip all spaces, IMHO.

BTW: All this stuff is true for MacOSX as well ...
