Bug 634819 changed the semantics of ReadStringValue to expand the environment variables for REG_EXPAND_SZ value types.  This is the right thing to do, but there may be callers in our code base which are expanding those variables on their own (which is arguably incorrect, since that expansion is invalid for REG_SZ values, and ReadStringValue does not return the value type to the caller), and we need to make them stop doing that.
