Segfault when calling `path_home()` #58

Some users at rstudio::conf were encountering segfaults when attempting to call path_home(). In fact, the error occurred while attempting to print the path -- unfortunately I don't have the call stack but the process was dying within a call to the stat_ R function with a null pointer dereference.

One user who encountered this was using El Capitan, in case the use of an older toolchain could be an issue.

This is likely from the same cause as the build failures on CRAN MacOS builder

Unfortunately I am still unable to reproduce this to figure out the issue
