Adding "!!" here is not a good idea, there is a very good reason why
the default settings are as they are.

The "!!" in front of TEXMFHOME and TEXMFVAR had been removed
deliberately because it was a source of confusion.

Do you have an ls-R file in TEXMFHOME?  Probably not (unless you added
TEXMFHOME to TEXMFDBS).  If my assumption is true then there is
probably a file in TEXMFHOME which cannot be found any more.  And if
things work better now, this file is probably broken.

I do not recommend to change too many variables in texmf.cnf.  The
standard setup should work.  

The kpathsea manual (texmf/doc/info/kpathsea.info) describes some
debugging variables you can set (section 2.6.3).

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
