I'm guessing that Netware says HOME:/ is an incomplete path... you
might need to use machine/HOME:/ instead to trick Netware into
accepting that path.  I'm not 100% certain on that; but we should 
be asking APR if the path corresponds to a legitimate rooted filepath.

The advantage is that machine/vol: syntax disambiguates the path
from a legitimate scheme prefix.  (I don't believe that slash is even
legitimate in the scheme-part.)
