-----
When fish starts up it checks to see what the home directory of the current
user is (in fi-utils.c, get_home_directory). Because
I had no /etc/nsswitch.conf (set to use files for all) and no
/lib/libnss_files.so.2, get_home_directory returned NULL which the strlen in
get_config_directory didn't like at all !
------

The code should instead fall back to some default location if no home
directory is found.
