VIM 8.0.69 not honoring "backupdir" and "directory"

Kyle Libbert
Hello,

I have been a vim and gvim user on Windows forever. I recently upgraded to VIM 8.0.69 and noticed it is creating backup and swap files in the same folder as the file I'm editing, even though I have both "backupdir" and "directory" set to a different location in "vimrc". I happen to be using Window 7 at my current client.

Any suggestions on what I might be doing wrong? Below are the settings I have in my vimrc if that helps.

if !isdirectory("c:\\temp\\vim_backups")
    call mkdir("c:\\temp\\vim_backups", "p")
endif

set lines=50      "screen height
set columns=180   "screen width
set nowrap
set number        "line numbers
set tabstop=2
set shiftwidth=2
set expandtab
set autoindent
set ic          "ignore case

" How to treat backup and swap files
set bdir=c:\\temp\\vim_backups,.
set dir=c:\\temp\\vim_backups

set smartindent

" Remove this if there are tabbing problems
" May want to try cindent instead
set smartindent

" Turn 'Show file types' in Syntax menu
if has('gui_running')
  " Always show file types in menu
  :let do_syntax_sel_menu = 1|runtime! synmenu.vim|aunmenu &Syntax.&Show\ filetypes\ in\ menu

endif

set diffexpr=MyDiff()
function MyDiff()
  let opt = '-a --binary '

      let cmd = '"' . $VIMRUNTIME . '\diff"'
    else
      let cmd = substitute($VIMRUNTIME, ' ', '" ', '') . '\diff"'
    endif
  else
    let cmd = $VIMRUNTIME . '\diff'
  endif
  silent execute '!' . cmd . ' ' . opt . arg1 . ' ' . arg2 . ' > ' . arg3
  if exists('l:shxq_sav')
    let &shellxquote=l:shxq_sav
  endif
endfunction

My issue was actually with the "undodir" setting. I mistakenly thought those turds were temp files. After setting "undodir" everything was copacetic.
