OK, I "fixed" my own problem, but I'm not overly happy with it. Apparently
this filename and location are compile-time constants, so I had to revert
to making a patch and compiling my own package. I would've loved to avoid
this since it would make updating harder, but alas.

It's a bit ironic to see that in a world littered of XML schemas, config 
files, gconf-voodoo and other configuration options you STILL end 
requiring a patched binary. Ah well :)
