Zenmap on Windows shows error: "The logfile 'zenmap.exe.log' could not be opened" #345

Looks like the default logfile location is in the same directory as the executable, but a regular user won't have access to write there. We should use either a temp directory or the %USERPROFILE%/.zenmap directory.

Py2exe is doing this:

It's capturing stderr and putting it in the logfile. Maybe we can override this; otherwise we'll have to reopen stderr somewhere else on Windows (like our own logfile)
