BTW where in the code is the home dir set?  i think Application Data is
the appropriate place to put the .diarc (and on multiuser windows

so that it "just works", unless of course someone else has followed up on the
other similar suggestions made recently...

IMO using some strange Micros~1 definition is _not_ the right way to go.
Problems like this should probably used on the toolkit level.

It probably will vanish, when g_get_home_dir() from glib-1.3 (than 2.0)
is used.
It returns the homedir; if not available the tmpdir; if not available
"C:\". And all the people not reading any FAQ but starting complains
have probably deserved to get the C: root dir filled with junk
and they probably won't even notice :-)
