if you go to the beginning of this thread, when it was still on
glasgow-haskell-users at haskell.org , you'll find (13/12/2007):

; if you absolutely want to define a %HOME%, and you
; also absolutely want to keep it different from %HOMEPATH%
; (which means you have two homes to take care of!), then
; you could try a simple workaround:
; %HOMEPATH%\.ghci:
;     :cmd System.Environment.getEnv "HOME" >>= \h->readFile (h++"/.ghci")
; %HOME\.ghci
;    -- as before

ie, don't override HOMEPATH, use it (or rather, the place
returned by System.Directory.getHomeDirectory) as the 
place to tell ghci where to look for your favourite holiday,
weekend, or winter home; replace HOME with GHCIHOME 
or whatever you'd like to set.

merry christmas everyone!-)
