GLib 2.27.1 (and higher) use different configuration path on Win32/Win64
|Assigned to:||Alguno||% Done:||
As of GLib 2.27.1 the function g_get_user_data_dir() returns a different folder than earlier versions of GLib did for Win32 and Win64 environments.
This causes the NNTPGrab snapshot r1804 and higher to not be able to find the configuration files and download queue.
An upgrade path needs to be implemented. Preferably by moving all files in the original folder to the new one

- As of GLib 2.27.1, the behaviour of g_get_user_data_dir() was changed to return
a different value. Provide an upgrade path for Win32/Win64 users so that their
configuration won't get lost due to this change. Closes #66
- Dropped the QtLockedFile and QtSingleApplication DLL's from the Win32/Win64 setups
as they're internally bundled now
