I've added a patch (# 20303) to the tracker 

to implement the updated config files names & paths as stated in the "Resource file paths" proposal : http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/BlenderDev/Blender2.5/ResourceFilePaths

It makes the config files reside in the OS standard path (given by the function BLI_getconfig_folder()):
OSX: ~/Library/Application Support/Blender
Linux: ~/.blender
Windows: ...\Application Data\Blender Foundation\Blender

The config files are renamed as stated in the proposal to more readable names:
.B25.blend, .Bfs, .Blog => startup.blend, bookmarks, file-history
The .thumbnails cache that was stored in the home dir is also stored in this standard folder, with the thumbnails name.

It should work on all platforms, but I've been able to test it only on OSX. So review from coders using linux &
windows is welcome!
