start in a directory where the user has write access.
But you can still launch Vim from a different directory if you don't
use the shortcut. For example, from a cmd.exe prompt in the Program
Files or Windows directories.
So this patch makes Vim use $TEMP and $TMP environment variables for
swap and backup files before the hard-coded C:\TEMP and C:\TMP which
don't exist on recent versions of Windows. Thus there should always be
a writable directory usable for swap and backup files. Previously only
the hard-coded values were used.
