Mentor 7.9.1: What is the purpose of viewdraw.ini?

In the latest installation of Mentor 7.9.1 we deleted accidentally the viewdraw.ini file in all of our WDIR- directories. 
Our WDIR variable looks like C:\WDIR;V:\standard_Mentor2007_9EXP;C:\MentorGraphics\7.9EE\SDD_HOME\standard and the viewdraw.ini was in none of these directories.

After that point DxDesigner didn't start anymore (1-68HQ9Q.png) until we restored the deleted viewdraw.ini in one of the WDIR directories

I also found out, that an empty viewdraw.ini file isn't sufficient, at least foolowing entry must be put into the viewdraw.ini: DIR [p] .

What purpose has the viewdraw.ini since the file isn't mentioned in the list of configuration files for 2007.x (http://supportnet.mentor.com/reference/technotes/public/technote.cfm?tn=mg530727)?
