The idea behind this is to make mplayer work like other windows apps when no
HOME environment variable is set
(outside of msys and cygwin environment):
You then have
Program Files\mplayer\mplayer.exe
Program Files\mplayer\mplayer\config
Program Files\mplayer\mplayer\codecs.conf
Program Files\mplayer\mplayer\font
Program Files\mplayer\mplayer\codecs for additional codecs (real etc.)
Then only a link to mplayer.exe on you desktop is needed.

That it did not make the mplayer dirs before was more or less a bug.
Mkdir only failed because the path where it wanted to make .mplayer dir
looked like c:\msys\home\unknown/.mplayer.
