appletviewer won't launch if Win32 users set HOME and use MKS korn shell

    Details

      Description

      To reproduce:
      1. use Windows95 ( I own such a system so I won't say this is your first mistake )
      2. set $HOME=D: ( actually set it to anything you like )
      3. use MKS Toolkit Korn Shell : sh
      4. try to launch appletviewer.

      You get an error like:

      Creating F:/\\.hotjava directory...
      Cannot write...

      and it quits.

      Workaround ( this is easy, but you have to know ) DO NOT set $HOME. If your MKS environment sets it, unset it.

      If you find another workaround, let me know, please.
