      Description

      Profile settings in TVB is hardcoded to write to user's home directory which is not always appropriate (on someone else's machine) or possible (distributed environment where /home is not writeable but e.g. /scratch is, as is the case for John Griffith on his grid).

      As a quick fix for John, I suggested the following

      I propose to integrate this or something similar.
