That change you suggest will cause a compiler error on Unicode builds
- and as that's the only type of build we support I'm don't want to
#ifdef it into the code without resurrecting the old non-unicode
support (which I don't want to do).

wxWidgets will try to write the cache on first use of the helpfile
regardless of what we do (and error if it cannot). Making the file
world-writable is preferrable to the directory.
