Thanks for your reply!
I read the specifications you mentioned. Setting the XDG_* variables fixes
the problem. However, it appears that Grisbi doesn't follow the
specifications with regard to unset XDG variables. It states, for example:
$XDG_CONFIG_HOME defines the base directory relative to which user
specific configuration files should be stored. If $XDG_CONFIG_HOME is
either not set or empty, a default equal to $HOME/.config should be used.
In my case (where $XDG_CONFIG_HOME is NOT set but $HOME is set to
/home/foo/temp), shouldn't Grisbi default to /home/foo/temp/.config rather
