2.1.9's Defaults.py has the following warning, which applies to both
LOG_DIR and VAR_PREFIX.  So if either appears in mm_cfg.py, there are
legitimate grounds for a harsh complaint to the vendor or installer.

# Nothing below here is user configurable.  Most of these values are in this

# any of them in your mm_cfg.py file!
