That's how it was originally intended to work, IIRC (but the
documentation indeed wrongly suggests to put paths there).  Obviously
since we didn't have that situation before I never fully tested and
completed this part.

For reasons I don't exactly remember, I wanted to avoid that.  Probably
because the user directory might not be available or accessible for the
install user, but then obviously you'd just as likely have a problem
with the actual rebasing also.  I've been mulling the idea of having
user specific rebase databases on top of the system one (or more
generally a hierarchy of rebase DB) several times and that's one of the
reasons they might be needed.

Let's discuss how this can and should work on cygwin-apps.
