since it is not documented behaviour, it could be both ways.  I
personally would keep it as it is now, the documentation for
--directory-prefix says:

     Set directory prefix to PREFIX.  The "directory prefix" is the
     directory where all other files and subdirectories will be saved
     to, i.e.  the top of the retrieval tree.  The default is '.' (the
     current directory).

perhaps it should be made clearer here that it won't affect the WARC
file destination.
