(minor) BUG: IDEA 7.0.1 maintenance installer suggest new directory

When installing the 7.0.1 maintenance release, the installer suggests to install at "IntelliJ IDEA 7.0.1", regardless of where the old version was installed.
This is a change of behavior from 6.x version maintenance releases, which installed at the same directory as the previous version.

I believe that all 7.0.x installers should be installed in the same directory as a previous 7.0.x version exists.
If no previous version exists, it should suggest "IntelliJ IDEA 7.0" and not "IntelliJ IDEA 7.0.1" as the new directory to install.

I prefer it that way, myself.

I just had to revert back to 7.0 because 7.0.2 was giving me exceptions - all I had to do was click on a different startup shortcut.
This way gives me a quick and easy way to check out new minor versions and revert if necessary.
