sphinx-quickstart misinterprets '~' in path
I pip'd Sphinx to my Linux Mint, Python 2.7 sytem and followed the tutorial suggestion to use sphinx-quickstart. I entered '~/tmp/docsrc' as the path and found that the tool created the folder '~' in my home directory instead of creating docsrc under the existing ~/tmp dir.
If this is the intended behavior, users should be warned somewhere to use full paths, without any shell aliases. Otherwise the software should be fixed.
