povray emits 120 lines of text per render, and not a one of them tells 
me which of my 21 copies of povray.ini it is reading. :(

I booted Windows, and am trying to change my default size from 800x600 
to 720x480.

It use the one found in :
/Users/%CurrentUser%/My documents/POV-Ray/v3.7/ini

You can safely delete those located anywhere else.

Try the "Edit master POVRAY.INI" menu item from the "Tools" menu.

I thought of that.  If only qtpov had such a thing. ;)
I thought of changing povconsole.exe (per se, actually povrayws64.exe) 
to tell me the location of the master .ini with the version command so I 
can get at that.

BTW, I stopped working on the integration of qtpov/povray because I have 
a leak in my povrayws64.exe.  That leak will exist after the 
integration, so I thought to tackle it first.  Prior to noticing the 
leak, I upgraded from Qt 5.9 to 5.10 and valgrind died. :(  So I have no 
easy way of chasing that down. I keep upgrading hoping one of these 
times it fixes valgrind.  google tells me I am the only person that 
valgrind crashes on startup since 2006.

It seems that my leak is Linux only. I wondered, because povwin doesn't 
leak.  I think that's somehow a clue.
