I moved the file and then tried to change the pref setting to set the  
local file.  The first time, it didn't create a new file.  I repeated  
changing a setting, this time clicking to change the initial working  
directory, although I didn't actually change that setting, the second  
time it created a new plist and set the default library path.

drwx------   38 james  james      1K Apr 14 20:52 Library/

drwxrwxr-x    3 james  admin  102B Apr 14 14:01 R.app/

So the directories look OK.  I'm not completely sure what triggered  
the generation of a new plist, but by itself, it doesn't seem like  
changing the default library path is enough.  I wonder if I moved the  
old file back into place and retried changing the initial working  
directory if that would work.

Anyway, thanks for the help.  I'll keep investigating.

BTW, sorry for the long delay.  Our power has been out.  We're in the  
midst of a snow storm.
