RE: Bug/Problem ${HOME} variable not honored on WIndows

Hmm - In my specific case - and numerous coworkers, my experience at large and small companies is this:
Only a very few files are synced between the network and my local machine.

For me - my "~/.ssh" directory is *NOT* synchronized, if it was - I would not be here talking about it.
And turning on SYNC often greatly destroys unix-like "chmod" settings on windows machines.

Andreas> But this only happens in MinGW?

Bottom line - in my case:

	Using "Git Bash" - aka:  https://git-scm.com/
	Both Win 7 and Win 10

I'm not totally sure the difference between "git bash" which I get from here: "https://git-scm.com"; 
What I know as "MingGW"  = it seems to be very much so identical to "git-bash" but there are little "got-yas" Grrr...

That said, if I set the variable "${HOME}" I expect it to be used. If not that, then at least something like  "${SSH_CONFIG_DIR}" would be an alternate

Others with similar problems:


See the *LAST* entry - the poster refers to "Z:\" as his network domain policy
That's my example
