#6464: FAQ clarification
 Reporter:  tamu2008                         |       Type:  defect
   Status:  new                              |   Priority:  minor 
Component:  pidgin (gtk)                     |    Version:  2.4.3 
 Keywords:  gtkrc location HOME Environment  |    Pending:  0     
 The FAQ entry "What is a gtkrc file and where can I find it?" should
 mention that, even in Windows environments, the %HOME% variable, if set,
 supersedes the others that are mentioned. I discovered this after 30
 minutes of trial and error.

 I use Cygwin and have therefore put $HOME in the Windows environment and
 that variable is used for gtkrc placement. I expect I'm not alone.

 Also, there may be other implications of having HOME set, though I've not
 yet come across them.
