In fact, it *is* in the Mac client's config dialog, as far back as the 412
build at least. I have it right here and am looking right at it. And it
hasn't moved since then. Go to the configuration/preferences dialog, click
Files, and enter something in the checkpoint fields.

Now, in the 412d Mac build at least (the one before 426), the checkpointing
wasn't working worth anything. I discovered this because all of a sudden,
now that I'm upgraded to 427 (or 426), my PowerBook's hard drive doesn't
sleep anymore, and I realize that before, the checkpoint files were in fact
hardly ever being written.
