Hrm, that looks wrong.

As does this. :^/

In either case, the line should be "savedir=...", and I'm actually not 100%
sure that a "~" will work in this case.  (I can't remember if that's just
a shell nicety or if the C "fopen()" call inside Tux Paint will be able to
figure out that "~" maps to, say, "/home/someperson".)

Anywehre in that file should work. :^)

Try with "savedir=" and see if that works.  (Now that I think of it, if
"~" or "$HOME" don't end up getting processed as we expect, I should add
some code inside Tux Paint to do it for us.)

Admittedly, the "savedir" option originally came about to allow for
"H:\somefolder\" specifications in Tux Paint under Windows, which would
explain why it's not very well-tested.
