We can see you are doing what you claim on the title (modulo "envar"
typo) to be doing, but it is unclear why this patch wants to exist
in the first place.

If the user for whatever reason "unset HOME", why is it a good idea
to read from a place that is found by getpwuid()?  What problem does
it want to fix?  Why does a user want this updated behaviour?

One level of indent is a HT, not two spaces.
