I see "" and NULL meaning two entirely different things, "" meaning
"read the configuration from the current working directory" and NULL
meaning "I want a the default configuration, so don't even try to read
the disk".

That said, I have *no* idea what standards the JavaHL code has for
itself regarding path handling of that sort.
