I just installed jython2.5b4 on openSUSE 11.0 in /usr/local/jython2.5b4.
As normal user I have a file ~/.jython that sets python.cachedir to a
private directory. This line is not evaluated. When I call jython it says: 
*sys-package-mgr*: can't create package cache dir,

This is the cachedir as defined per default by the registry in the
installation directory.

This is due to the change in

The fix tried to make registry file properties overridable with System 
properties (e.g. -D options to the JVM), which is IMHO correct.
But it lead to the behaviour change you describe. 

Roughly speaking, properties from (any) registry file only are added if 
not yet present. So my first idea is to read those of the user file 
first, and the installed one second.
This would hopefully revert the behaviour as you expected so far (before 
beta 4).

I'll put together a snapshot build for testing it out.

With r6283 (junit tests) i am now much more confident with the fix of 

Snapshot build coming soon.

the snapshot build is here:

I'd be glad if you could test again with this version.

The cache is now created at the place, the entry in .jython says. If no
private entry exists, the cache is created at the place the global
registry says. 

Looks ok for me. Thank you.
