Just a little clarification, if any is needed... Back in the days there was
a... Contriversy... About using one user prefs file for setting things
that clearly should be in a .cf file... The symlink was suggested as a
workaround, and... It stuck. But for some versions, the setting was still
possible... And then removed.
At that time, and henceforth, the upgrade conf script would have removed
the setting altogether, something that was missed on Bryans system (script
simply not run, or not correctly:-)).
