It appears that the installer remembers which components were selected during
the last install.

However, it does not remember the path.

This is quite significant because it means that every update to a new version
will spawn a new directory, and the user might accrue version after version
without realising it.

I want OpenOffice installed in C:\OpenOffice (not the usual paradigm nowadays, I
know, but still). I just upgraded to 2.3 and ended up with the old version in
C:\OpenOffice and the new one in C:\Program Files, just because I assumed that
since it remembers the components it would also remember the path.

Please make it remember the path from one installation to the next, especially
if it was changed away from the default.
