USERPROFILE is not passed by default on Windows

Issue #322 on hold
Andre Caron created an issue

I just got bit by this strange issue. One of my Tox virtual environment creates a nested virtual environment which does not respect settings in ~/pip/pip.ini. This is problematic because the nested environment needs to install packages from our corporate DevPI installation.

I can "fix" this by adding USERPROFILE in passenv, but I find it strange that the default behavior breaks pip and it's really hard to diagnose this unless you can make educated guesses about pip internals.
