Totally Bizarre Issue with Opera/XP/W7

I've been running w7 as a work machine for a month or two now, currently on 7100.

I have XP dual booted. I have Opera on both. Opera installed last year on XP and a month ago on W7

The bizarre problem, I copied over some profile stuff for opera to the w7 install.

I booted into XP loaded up opera and all my settings were nowhere to be found, digged around a little and found that Opera was calling for the settings from W7! c:\users\roaming\appdata blah blah blah.

Since that doesn't exist on my XP install, it created it's own folder there. I uninstalled opera, reinstalled and the default location to find the user data is mimicking a user directy from W7? wtf is this about.

The XP and W7 are on entirely different hard drives, I fresh installed W7 off a usb disk. XP is 32 bit W7 is 64 bit.
