Photoshop CC (14.1 and 14.0) deleting folders upon exiting!

Under certain conditions, when you remove the MachinePrefs.psp file form the AppData\Roaming\Adobe\...\ folder, exiting Photoshop will cause PS to delete certain folders from my hard drive. Now this is not a chance occurrence: I have consistently been able to reproduce this on VM's, live installs, etc., both on Win7 and Win8. I have -- rather exhaustively -- detailed my findings in this thread:

Please look into this problem. I had hoped this issue would be fixed with 14.1 but I can still reproduce it. Under no circumstances should PS be deleting any folders at all but it most certainly is. Again this morning I created 2 folders on C:\ (starting with an "a", so alphabetically before "Program Files") and it deleted them completely upon exiting Photoshop. This is a major no-no for any program to behave this way -- let alone such a pro tool as Photoshop!
