Yes, but it's a chicken-and-egg problem.  The registry for the environment
has been set up right, but the environment variables themselves have not
yet been set when shell32 is being registered.  shell32 and the
environment are registered at roughly the same time, and shell32 uses the
registry at registration time to create the default profile directories.

Are you suggesting setupapi special case registry value setting so that if
it recognizes the key as affecting the environment, it should set the
variable on the spot?  Or do you have another suggestion?
