I think it ignores .pan and just uses .pan2. That way you can keep
old-pan around (it uses .pan). I think the structure is different too.
Once 0.119 is up and running, does it continue to use .pan, or will it
stick to .pan2? I ask because .pan at present is much the largest file in
my home directory -- and I may be a long while getting
around to going through it.
That's what I do, and I just have a symlink ~/.pan2 pointing to the
actual .pan2 (which is not in my home directory).
I think there's an environment variable you can set to specify any
directory pathname you want (but I forget what it is).
So one obvious way to make space, it seems to me, would be to move .pan
into some other directory entirely -- somewhere such as /opt, for
instance. Reasonable?? Or would that be asking for trouble?
