definetly right - when you edit a text file, the .bak will end up in the
same dir as the original too, not in system32 ;-)

but seriously, another aspect are read/write permissions. it is clear
that gbak will have rights in the gdb directory, whereas this is not
certain for <wherever else the gks would go>. Any change that avoids
these kind of problems is always welcome!
