XP installation woes

On Fri, 2 Sep 2005, Alan Isaac wrote:> matplotlib's __init__.py is apparently looking

at os.environ['HOME'], but the default XP setting
for that is '%USERPROFILE%', which then gets passed
(*without* expansion) on by get_home even though it's
expansion is needed. So import pylab does not work.

Patch to matplotlib/__init__.py is attached (unified diff).
