Well, it did, and kmail(1) had been using it just fine, so /it/ could 
obviously see it.

Which is why I suggested there might have been some obscure race 
condition (four CPU cores and four-spindle-kernel-raid-1, with quite 
heavy unrelated disk I/O at the same time, nice race condition territory 
indeed!) that caused the config lookup not to return the dir, once you 
disabused me of my notion that it only worked on the defaults as my 
possible explanation of choice.

Whatever, maybe it was a cosmic ray hitting that bit of memory at the 
wrong time! =:^\  Actually more likely than a cosmic ray (the memory /is/ 
ecc) might be some obscure kernel vfs bug or the like, given I was/am 
running mainline linus git kernels, and was running something around 3.0-
rc3 at the time.  That's unlikely too as I've seen no other problems with 
the kernel this cycle, but everything at this point is unlikely, so...

Probably just a one-off of some sort.  Those things happen.
