I was able to reproduce your problem on Fedora Core 4 with Python 2.4. 
The problem seems to be in dump.py on line 93:

    outputdir = os.path.abspath(self.options.target_dir)

On Windows, self.options.target_dir has the value None when the
statement is executed and outputdir is set to the current directory --
all the HTML files are then written to the current directory.

On Linux, the results are as posted above.

I was able to work around the problem by commenting out line 93 in
dump.py and adding the following new line:

        # outputdir = os.path.abspath(self.options.target_dir)
        outputdir = '/home/myname/myoutputdir'

Unless someone else can offer an explanation of what we are doing
wrong, I will add this to the buglist tomorrow.
