    newdifftab: Avoid expanduser for Windows unicode problems (bgo#756901)
    On Windows, os.path.expanduser() breaks for unicode home directories.
    This patch attempts to work around this problem for the new comparsion
    tab by using the GLib equivalent when all we want is the home directory
