Scanning rom files ... disappearing roms.

I'v just decided to test something on FSUAE. (windows)

I had a portable version installed, and saw there is an update to 3.0.5

First i downloaded the installer, but as soon as i noticed that it is installing somewhere unwanted, i have uninstalled it, then downloaded the archive.

So what has happened ?

Some time ago, i have moved all my kickstarts into an sub folder.
And now, i could not start fsuae because of missing roms.

So, i have added the subfolder to the file database. And did the "Update file database" scan.

After it was done, i tried to start the emulation, but i had a custom rom still selected, so that FSUAE were complaining about the missing rom.

This was somewhat lucky, for else i may have noticed it later. At least when starting the winuae.

So i opened the rom selector, navigated to the kickstart rom folder, which is in the winuae folder, and then i noticed that it was completely empty.

All roms have disappeared.

Luckily i found them fast. They were moved to the FSUAE folder.

Please fix this.
