I think it should be allowed always to use $HOME, according to
getpwnam(3):

"An application that wants to determine its user's home
directory should inspect the value of HOME (rather than the
value getpwuid(getuid())->pw_dir) since this allows the user to modify
their notion of "the home directory" during a login session."

I see no reason to get initial homedir.
