If I'm understanding this correctly, updated() should be called on every
field change in kcontrol, but for whatever reason this may be broken for
My Documents, and Tim is hoping that causing a *different* field to fire 
the event will cause kcontrol to catch the change to My Documents as well.
The second field needn't be relevant to the setting you're actually trying to 
change—it just needs to make the updated() call—so choose one at random.
