Don't remember about having answered this question. If it had been as clear as you explain I certainly would not have answered yes. I had nothing inside /import.
Anyway I had not set this path before, I set it for the first time. It simply happened to be set to my home dir, like numerous other pathes in the same setting window. It's a bit strange to move all my home dir to a subdir supposed to be for downloads, no? Why?

Well, this does not tell me where my previous settings and application data are gone... I still have lost all my mail addresses and firefox bookmarks. The rest is not such important, just hours of re-setting.
