Steve, the problem you mention is caused by logging into Windows with a user
account that does not have write access to the server's "Settings" folder,
not by DedicatedServer.exe. In this case the server application uses a
config folder created under "My Documents" where it has permission to write.
The solution to this problem is to remove the "ghost config folder" and, of
course, to login with a user account that DOES have write permissions to the
server's "Settings" folder.

Are you sure ur checking the right file. IIRC the dedicatedserver.exe used
to use a strangely placed file somewhere under the users documents iirc but
only if it happened to exist. Had me searching for ages as to why my server
was running the wrong map list.
