I just added the following comment to that bug:

Note that the data should go in a file called "default_configuration.ini".
I am fairly sure this works, as when it was first released a number of
people had problems with the feature - eg, some people found we prevented
spaces or $ as appearing in the filename.  Also, SpamBayes had a bug in that
if the default directory had an extended character, SpamBayes would also
fail to work.  A number of people reported a reasonable work around was to
specify the data directory to be a name with only ascii characters.

If you still believe this a bug, please give exact details of what you tried
- the fully qualified name of the ini file you edited, the complete contents
of that file, and the complete contents of the log.  If you do this, please
also reopen the bug.
