gvim Portable is not running in the MSYS environment, so how do you expect it to
know where $HOME is?

In the absence of HOME being set, I suspect gvim is probably defaulting to
%USERPROFILE%, IMO a sensible idea.

If you want gvim to work within MSYS' file structure;ie /home/$USERNAME, you
need to start MSYS first, and then start gvim from within MSYS so that it
inherits the MSYS environment.
