It's looking inside the path pointed by the XDG_CONFIG_HOME
environement variable, which can be set to any path. Running
xdg-user-dirs-update at startup is necessary to ensure that
user-dirs.dirs is created inside XDG_CONFIG_HOME, whatever that is.
See the spec


The spec doesn't make very clear if running the script is
responsibility of the desktop environment or of the login manager.
Though, in practice, it seems that gnome-session is running it
(through the xdg autostart spec) and I think it make sense to follow
the same logic for sugar.
