This is actually a (minor) problem sometimes -- e.g. students at unversity
where I work have roaming profiles so the could log in and work prom
any PC in the domain.
With config in local appdata, they are forced to re-configure IDE on
each session.

As a related note, I have more serious problem with Lazarus config: on my PC
(Windows XP SP2 Russian) Larazus insists on saving it in "C:\Documents",
although APPDATA=C:\Documents and Settings\ask\Application Data
Apparently, it chokes on long names with spaces.
