Sounds like a change in where they stick local configuration.  Of
course, this isn't mention in the github changelog, the dummies.

Change Log (April 2012)
+ For GNU/Linux version, we now use ~/.local/share/vsxu INSTEAD of
~/.vsxu Since you might want to look this over (and your backup
scripts!) we think you should do the migration yourself, thus we didn't
add an automatic script to copy the old files into this new location.
The reason for this move is to better comply with standards.

+ For GNU/Linux version, we now create a symbolic link in your home
directory - "vsxu" which points to ~/.local/share/vsxu for your convenience

Your google-fu is weak, young one.
