OK, what the heck is an EMACSPACKAGEPATH key doing in my registry? And why
does (getenv "EMACSPACKAGEPATH") return its value. <sigh> I knew running
windows was going to be painful again.
Anyway, if I comment out the code in
packages.el:packages-find-all-package-hierarchies that parses the
EMACSPACKAGEPATH env var, then configure-package-path is used and it is
parsed correctly (this is in vanilla beta, without Vin's patch), and all the
packages are found.
I'm going to try again with Vin's patch in a second.
