Thanks Geert.  I thought you had posted some time ago about the change in
v3 but I may have misread.

I don't use .gnucash in my home dir (windows) as I like to keep all of my
GNC stuff together on an encrypted drive.  I then use GNC_DOT_DIR to point
to that. (I also use AQBanking_Home to point to the encrypted drive.)

I thought I read (probably mistaken) that in v3, GNC_DOT_DIR was deprecated
and that GNC_DOC_DIR replaced it.  Does v3 still use GNC_DOT_DIR?

And great thought about the themes.  I'll that.
