Ok, here is the problem, Dia looks very nice, but the RPM provided by
DAG (a major provider of RPMs for Redhat systems) is not behaving

Is DAG installing into /usr ? If not, he needs to configure with the
right --prefix. Also, he complains that is not shipped, AFAIR

One thing you could do if it still fails is to strace dia, and then grep
the strace output for "open" and the like -- and see what it tries to do
and where.

No, it will write the defaults once it runs.

The libraries may not be loaded through open, try running strace and
