Change logfactor5 userdir

At least on *nix systems user settings and other configuration (non-data) files should be places in hidden folders (beginning with a dot) inside home directory. This patch changes hardwired logfactor directory so that it is created as hidden directory with more verbose name. No policy exists for Windows as far as directory names for configuration are concerned so this should not affect it.

Attached patch changes userdir for logfactor from $HOME/lf5 to $HOME/.logfactor5
Patch was created against 1.2.16 release of log4j
