Comment 1 Mark Wielaard 2006-12-20 15:55:05 UTC
This caused because of the definition of FRYSK_DIR in Config:

    public static final String FRYSK_DIR
        = System.getProperty("user.home") + "/" + ".frysk" + "/";

"user.home" is set to getpwuid()->pw_dir (in gcj), so it doesn't take $HOME into
account. You can use System.getenv("HOME") however to get at $HOME from java.
