Hi all,

the current version of PathInputPanel logs a stacktrace on Linux systems when no defaultInstallDir

PS: The problem is also present in older versions of IzPack. But now the stack trace is printed 
because the following lines where added to the loadDefaultInstallDir() method:

             //mar: what's the common way to log an exception ?
