Issue description
Some users might not like their home directory user user name being included in crash reports.

We already ask users to review all submitted information, but we don't need that information so it shouldn't be included by default.

For *NIX systems, replacing the value of $HOME with \$HOME in all logs (incl. debug output) and in paths in crash.xml would be enough.

For Windows we'd need something similar, but hiding user names in the minidumps might be harder.
