I agree with David that this is a painful situation. Sometimes you want to reorganize your Hard Disk, or take a project with you on a laptop. Having user.databases break every time is not fun.
My solution (I implement it as a hack thru frontierstartupcommands.txt): add an item in user.databases called relpath or so:
f filespec: myhd:mypath:guest databases:apps:my.root openonstartup boolean: true runstartupscript boolean: true supportsSubscribe boolean: true relpath string: apps/my.root
on startup, relpath would be parsed into a filespec starting from the gdb folder and stored in f. it's that easy.
