Excellent, that's the bit of into I wanted to check. So, the mac
getConfigDir code is...

#define MACOSX_CONFIG_DIR "/Library/Application Support"
    if( osl_psz_getHomeDir(Security, pszDirectory ...
        strcat( pszDirectory, MACOSX_CONFIG_DIR );
        return sal_True;

and connectivity has...

        { "../Mozilla/SeaMonkey/", NULL, NULL },
        { "Firefox/", NULL, NULL },
        { "../Thunderbird/", NULL, NULL }

which suggests that getConfigDir works out of the box for windows and
macosx, and its just the "generic" unix where $HOME/.config isn't
suitable to find .mozilla etc. So...


is what I've committed to master, i.e. leave macosx alone seeing as it
probably works right now, and fix the generic case to look
for .mozilla/.thunderbird etc under the home dir, so you can layer your
icedove stuff on top of that now.
