as I took the original Azureus-xxxx-Byy.jar from here:
and do nothing at all with it ... it is the original jar file provided by the 
Azureus team.

In my package I only create a kde-menu-entry and a wrapper-script to set 
classpaths and java-library-paths according the jpackage polica which is used 
on SuSE distribution: so I won't believe its a package bug :)

It is the "natural" behaviour of Azureus to create this folder in the 
home-directory of the user who first started Azureus, so I can't do anything 
against it, ok, I could compile Azureus from source and inspect the source 
code to find out there this path is set. But that is something I won't do... 

In the posting you mentioned, there is no hint at all for a solution. And the 
guy who posted where has a languagae and attitude I don't like at all....
