[texworks] Bug in 0.4.5 r.1280 (MikTeX 2.9): HOME set incorrectly

This bug seems to affect the MikTeX version, but not the "official" one.
When running a typesetting too, it constructs the HOME environment
variable incorrectly. For example, before starting TeXWorks I have no
HOME set, just HOMEDRIVE and HOMEPATH. (This is pretty standard in
Windows 7; not sure about other versions).
When I start TeXWorks and create a fake typesetting tool that runs
cmd.exe, I can type SET HOME in the console prompt, and I see this:
Notice the double backslash after C: in HOME. That's not a valid path
on Windows, so my real typesetting tool (R) fails when it can't find the
user's home directory.
