So if I specified '$HOME\Documents\coding\gc-decl-reports\gc-decl-reports.scm' the load function would actually try to load '$HOME\.gnucash\$HOME\Documents\coding\gc-decl-reports\gc-decl-reports.scm'. Whoops. I don't know if this behaviour is specific to Windows or to 2.6 versus 2.4.

Actually it's prepending $GNC_DOT_DIR, which defaults to $HOME/.gnucash. It does that because that's where it expects custom reports to be, and it does it on all platforms.
