(1)  you might need to consider the use scenario of an unset HOME env
(2)  it appears to be an in-compatible change if the values from 
getpwuid and
from HOME are different (understood this is what you want to address), 
in which
I think might need a CCC review (for the possible in-compatible change 
of behavior)
