EnumUsersReg and SetRegView

Hello world,

being 32-bit executables, NSIS installers are subject to registry redirection on 64-bit systems. So "HKCU\Software\..." and "HKLM\Software\..." are redirected to "HKCU\Software\Wow6432Node\..." and "HKLM\Software\Wow6432Node\..." unless "SetRegView 64" is used.

But how about the HKU user subkeys, e. g. the temporary user subkey that is used by "EnumUsersReg.nsh"? Is this also subject to redirection, so that "TempKey\Software\..." effectively goes to "TempKey\Software\Wow6432Node\..."? (And, if so, will "SetRegView 64" also disable the redirection here?)

I know I could just try, but I won't have an NSIS machine at hand for some days, and I'm curious.
