#9664 new defect

Conf parameter still creates files in %appdata%

Description

Using --config="conf\scummvm.ini" means I get to use a portable version for an INI file under ScummVM's own folder.

But using it still creates %appdata%\ScummVM.
Under it are Logs and Saved games.
The former contains scummvm.log and the latter is empty, probably because the portable scummvm.ini contains alternative locations for extrapath and savepath.

This is for usage of ScummVM as a portable application, so it needs to not create files outside of it's own installation folder:

This is mainly for Win32 when running off a USB stick, but ensuring this kind of operation is useful for debugging / development even on other operating systems.
