Latest git HEAD fails to run under linux #1184
When trying to run "sparkleshare start" after building and installing git rev 7f6e53c, I get the following traceback:
SparkleShare version: 1.1.0

More details: the problem actually has to do with when a user's ~/.config/sparkleshare directory is still present from a previous version of sparkleshare. So, probably some logic to tell what version of sparkleshare is associated with the current config-directory would make sense. For example, when the config directory is created or updated, there could be a file within it which tracks the current state of the directory and/or sparkleshare revision. This can be used by future versions of sparkleshare to perform upgrades, etc.
It would also be good to have a more helpful error message pointing to the problem so that a user can manually remove the directory as a workaround for the present time.
