Interesting. I was always changing them (library and config) as a pair. I either used both environment variables (CALIBRE_LIBRARY_DIRECTORY and CALIBRE_CONFIG_DIRECTORY) or one config environment variable (CALIBRE_CONFIG_DIRECTORY) and one command line option (--with-library). It didn't occur to me that changing only the config directory would also change the default library associated with it.

FWIW: There is no problem having many configurations for one library, but there should be only one library for a configuration.
It's odd that we have ended up with two easy (GUI) ways to change the library associated with a config (Prefs and Wizard), but no easy way to change the config, when we really shouldn't use multiple libraries for a single config.
