Configuration checker shows the message "missing WebPreferences Topic" for the data directory (DataDir) although there are actually no missing WebPreferences Topic

The following fix might help - have not tested it yet on a system with data in the path - but it doesn't cause issues with my system.

Tested fix with data appearing in multiple places in path - seems to work. Committed to trunk for now.
