 I've added a branch chiiph/bug3843_checkauto with fix for this.

 The logic behind it is the following:
 When vidalia is going to start tor:
 if autcontrol==true && datadirectory==false:
    disable autocontrol and start tor normally.

 In the Advanced Settings panel:
 if the user tries to save autocontrol=true and datadirectory="":
    display a message informing the user that she must fix that.

 if the tor version is <
    autocontrol=false, and hide the autocontrol checkbox.
