speech-dispatcher now requires ~root/.speech-dispatcher when run as service

Hi.  The speech-dispatcher I updated in Karmic today no longer works
out-of-the box with /etc/init.d/speech-dispatcher.  Even with the -C
flag to specify a directory, it insists that ~root/.speech-dispatcher
exists.  A symbolic link from that to /etc/speech-dispatcher also
fails, since speechd.conf is not in a conf sub-directory.

Is this a bug in speech-dispatcher, or should I just configure the
system service in ~root/.speech-dispatcher rather than /etc?
