mongo shell creates a new .dbshell file in the current directory on windows(should be user's home directory?)

      Every time the mongo shell is started it results in a copy of .dbshell in the current working directory. This can lead to multiple copies of .dbshell in different directories. It should probably create a single copy of .dbshell in the user's home directory.

      To reproduce:

      C:\test>dir
      Volume in drive C is OS
      Volume Serial Number is 2E9C-358E

      Directory of C:\test

      09/20/2011 02:49 PM <DIR> .
      09/20/2011 02:49 PM <DIR> ..
