I think it should be allowed always to use $HOME, according to

"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.
