[LDM #KAS-595282]: is "data" appended to datadir-path

The working directory of all pqact(1) processes is the value of the LDM 
registry parameter "/pqact/datadir-path". You can see this value with the 
command "regutil /pqact/datadir-path". Consequently, all relative pathnames in 
FILE actions of a pqact(1) configuration-file will be relative to this 
directory. For example, the following entry

    <feed> <pattern> FILE foo.bar

will append products to the file `regutil /pqact/datadir-path`/foo.bar, whereas 
this entry

    <feed> <pattern> FILE /tmp/foo.bar

will append products to the file "/tmp/foo.bar".

You can set the current working directory for all pqact(1) processes via the 
command "regutil -s <datadir> /pqact/datadir-path", where <datadir> is the 
pathname of the "data" directory. Then, either restart your LDM or execute the 
command "ldmadmin pqactHUP".
