That's a problematic Windows "feature", starting with vista -- if an
application wants to write to its own directory but doesn't have
permissions to do so, it makes a shadow copy instead.

Matthew -- I've added the `requestedExecutionLevel' thing to the
manifest files.  I used `asInvoker' which sounds like the right thing:
not change the level but disables UAC.  It's commented out for now,
but I think that adding it is a good idea for avoiding these
confusing situations.
