RE: Amaya 7.1 on WinXP will no longer start

When Amaya doesn't like the home page, it still (Amaya v8.0 on WindowsXP)
refuses to show its pretty face: I could see amaya only in the WinXP task
manager.  It'd be a nice feature if Amaya could recover from a bad homepage,
maybe by giving up and showing a "your homepage setting is not viewable"
page.  Because otherwise, if the user doesn't find his Amaya config file, he
has a real problem:  even uninstalling Amaya and reinstalling it will not
correct the problem and Amaya will remain unusable.

Amaya 8.0 spells thotrc "thot.rc" on WinXP I eventually found out.

The Amaya mailing list archives do not hide correspondents' email addresses
enough to frustrate harvesting by spammers.

OTOH, amaya's great.

The file that defines settings is

AMAYA-INSTALL-DIR\users\username\thotrc on Win 98
 C:\winnt\profiles\username\Amaya\thotrc  on Win NT
C:\Program Files\Amaya\config on Win 2000
