I've doubled checked on windows and g_get_user_data_dir actually points to the my documents folder (which is an ideal place to save matches), the existing g_get_home_dir points to the base user directory which isn't the place to put files.

So g_get_user_config_dir()/gnubg is the right place for the settings on windows.

Where do these point to on Unix?

If you do that, I think we should distinguish between
g_get_user_data_dir and g_get_user_config_dir. Otherwise we pollute
the directory structure under unix.

This would mean changing the szHomeDirectory to be g_get_user_config_dir()
(instead of g_get_home_dir()).  I'm not sure where this would point to in

If I make the change I'll change the copy rc function to copy any existing
files from the old location to the new.
