I uninstalled the program and then reinstalled to a
different drive. In the new installation I received
errors that referred to the old directory.

p.s. I wouldn't have reinstalled if the program allowed
me to set the data directory.

    Data directory is settable now. Configuration files land in
    standard locations that are tied to the user and independent
    of the installation directory.

    I'm leaving this open though because the re-installation
    behavior, afaik, hasn't been tested yet with the installer.
    Pretty sure this goes to Perica. Reassign if not.

    Closing this as fixed; the application directory isn't used unless
    we can't find the user's home directory, and that (to me) is a
    different bug.
