When using the overlay function, captures are still written the original mount.
eg:
mount c /somewhere/original <--- captures are written here
mount c /somewhere/overlay -t overlay <--- instead of here

Is this intentional ? because personally I'd expect them to be in the overlay 😁

EDIT: Its written to the folder where dosbox.conf resides isn't it ?

Yeah, captures has its own path on the host that has nothing to do with any mounted drives.
By default it's the "capture" subdirectory of the folder where the current config file is located.

Can I use an absolute path ? It does not say in the config.
