Hey

At work, we use "folder redirection" and hence %appdata% points to a directory on a file server. This causes problems with Jitsi, as it
a) constantly writes the .log and .pcap over the network
b) leaves files open and hence prevents standby

The cache files created by Felix in the sip-communicator.bin directory are equally bad. Even worse, if two computers had different versions of Jitsi installed, the shared cache can confuse Felix to death.

Are there any objections that I move these to %localappdata%\Jitsi\ (which usually expands to c:\users\username\AppData\local\Jitsi)?

Just to note that %LOCALAPPDATA% doesn't exist on Windows XP (afaict),
only %APPDATA% does. (and regardless of EOL'ing the reality
is that a significant portion of the world's computers still
run that and will continue to run that for some time to come)
