[Win7] When an error occurs, Zim tries to write to log in "Program Files" and fails because this is not allowed
Reported by 'masseylaw' in the bug tracker on the old Google Code site for Zim 0.2x, which I will be closing down shortly.
In Windows 7, if Zim encounters any error it wants to log, then it tries to write to "C:\Program Files\Zim Desktop Wiki\zim.exe.log" and this action fails because Windows 7 does not a user running in standard unprivileged mode to write to "Program Files".
We need to do something about Zim's propensity to write error chatter to this file in the background, but more importantly we need to make sure in Windows this file is located in the USER's DATA folder somewhere.
