Windows User Environment Variables Not Loaded in Terminal

I use a corporate laptop, and have set my HOME variable to my Documents directory (for easier backup/restore) using the User Accounts -> "change my environment variables" (User Variables) dialog box. RStudio picks this up (Sys.getenv("HOME")) gives me C:\Users\MyName\Documents, but the Terminal pane does not (it returns C:\Users\MyName). This is mostly a problem because the RStudio GUI git commit operation complains that it cannot find my configuration setting, which is in fact in the git --global config file under my HOME directory and git at the standard command line can access it.

Can I get MINGW to pick up the user environment variables? If not, where would I configure the environment variables for the RStudio Terminal?

Edit: I found Using the RStudio Terminal in the RStudio IDE – RStudio Support, and my setting is default (use Git Bash from Git for Windows) but when I independently start Git Bash the environment variables are inherited correctly. I also tried changing the Terminal to Command but the environment variables are still wrong when that setting takes effect.
