Thanks for the detective work David!

StrongED_Export$Dir and StrongED_Scrap$Dir are old variables names. In
4.69 they have been renamed to StrongED$ExportDir and StrongED$ScrapDir.
This so that they are of the form AppName$xyz, which is the proper form.

For some reason however the StrED_cfg that ships with 4.70a12 has an
'UserPrefs.Init' file which gets renamed to UserPrefs.StartUp.UserInit
(looks like I included an old version of StrED_cfg).

The Init file still has the old forms of the above system variables.

Yes, that's how it's supposed to be. :-)
