Your r19947 freeciv-gtk2.exe seems to be happy to save and load settings
and savegames. The path it's chosen is
C:\Users\Jacob Nevins\AppData\Roaming \.freeciv-client-rc-2.3
which seems reasonable.

Setting HOME to match this (...\Roaming) doesn't make your r19947
freeciv-modpack.exe stop crashing.

However, doing so with Christian's 2.3.0-beta4 (which ought to paper
over the worst bug and get it basically working for everything except
scenarios) causes it to _start_ crashing :( So it looks like we have a
real bug, that was previously masked by the failure to find a home

It's not looking good :(
