New issue 1944 by mt02caro: post-review .reviewboardrc location calculation is not portable in windows

What version are you running?

What's the URL of the page containing the problem?

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Put .reviewboardrc in %APPDATA% (for vista this is not "..\Local Settings\Application Data" (it doesn't exist) but something like "C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming", which is not constant, ofcourse.
2. Use post-review and see if it loads the server url correctly.

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
post-review should load .reviewboardrc from %APPDATA% and not %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data

What operating system are you using? What browser?
Windows Vista

Please provide any additional information below.

To make post-review portable cross windows versions the homepath calculation in should simply be the "APPDATA" environment variable. Perhaps leave the current calculation as a fallback.

A patch for this has been attached.
