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.

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.
