For Configuration.AppSettings ["blah"] to load its data from
tdav.config, it has to be executed from an assembly named 'tdav' which
is in the same directory as 'tdav.config'.

The concatenation of assembly->basedir + assembly->image->name +
".config" will give you the path to the file that C# will expect. So if
you have /tmp/tdav.exe, the configuration file loaded for
System.Configuration will be /tmp/tdav.exe.config.
