GZDoom eats and overrides config files

In order to investigate this, I'm going to need to find where and when GZDoom begins and writes out a new INI file, if it fails to find and/or read an INI file.

This bug is completely sporadic, so I suspect something isn't initializing properly when it happens. Ever since the new fullscreen variable was introduced, somewhere around that time, I've encountered moments of starting up where it just completely disregards the INI previously made and wipes it out.

So that explains why that happened to me the other night. I thought I was going insane.

Yeah I did too. This is annoying. It happens so rarely though.

You can start from here.
