Bug: logfile name in options won't expand %userprofile%

I set my logfile to be %userprofile%\logs\%S_%Y%M%D_%h%m%s.log, but it won't accept the %userprofile% portion. If I change the ini file manually, I can log to my %userprofile%\logs directory, so it expands correctly, but if you open the options, see the %userprofile%, make no changes, click ok, scrt complains about the log file name. As soon as you replace %userprofile% with the actual path, it works. It just seems like the options dialog doesn't correctly expand %userprofile%.

Kinda. The options dialog actually shows that you can do %<envvar>%, and while you can edit the session ini file directly to make it work, the options dialog won't close unless you edit it. It seems that the options dialog make sure that the directory exists, and since it doesn't expand the %var% correctly, won't accept the value.

This looks like a bug. I just tried it in 4.1 and it accepted it. 5.0 is being too restrictive with substitution parameters. I'll log this.
