This change initially worried me, but looking at your changes I think I can
work around it :-) The problem I have is that I'm planning to give distcc
to the rest of the studio here, and we all use Win2k with a bastardised
version of Cygwin. It's not a full install, so most people don't have a
true 'home' directory in the UNIX sense of the word. I think I'll be OK
making them set a HOME environment variable in Windows. Unfortunately I
can't access CVS through our firewall to test it.

I'm know I'm in the minority here, but I just wanted to point out that not
everyone has a full UNIX environment to work in so try not to assume it :-)
I've had enough battles getting distcc working under Win2k with a version
of gcc that only understands DOS paths - I don't need any more hassle ;-)

Thanks for all the work you guys have done so far,
