I think, .config/Kontakter is not good location for database storage on Linux system.
~/.Kontakter is better solution.

Similar situation I see on Windows platform. Rather than %APPDATA%, %HOMEDIR\Documents\Kontakter looks better to me for the database storage.

Patch was made against Tim Kleinschmidt's branch (commit 121). It looks more recent than trunk.
As I'm not able to compile and test on Windows platform, patch was tested on Linux only.

Hello Zdeněk Hataš,

thank you for this work. I didn't know about someone else working on a branch, this is a good news, since a lot time passed from my last commit. Maybe I can merge Tim Kleinschmidt's branch at some point.

As soon as I have some time I'll merge this patch and of course update the contributor list...
