New installation doesn't ask where to put settings?

Hi.

Is it normal that the new installation doesn't ask you where you want to
put your settings (Local Settings vs inside Idea directory)?
I think that could be problematic when trying EAPs. (breaking current
non EAP version and/or projects)

Thanks

Anyone?
I hate it if Idea puts tons of files in my profile. It makes logging into Windows take ages as my profile is synchronized (via Samba I guess) with our linux server.

Currently you have to modify the paths in $IDEA_HOME/bin/idea.properties
manually.

Thanks a lot - I looked the batch file up and down and found no options there...
