They are a problem, yes. Don't set HOME. Unless you know why you're

This has the guidelines for reporting problems to the list. If you
follow these, people here will have a better idea of what your configuration
is and where your problems are. Please try to be as specific as possible
with your problem descriptions, as we can only know what you tell us.
