Issue with making Google Chrome Portable the default browser. Registry and Profile location question.

I sync my portable apps between all my computers and virtual machines.
I am considering disabling the syncing of Google Chrome Portable on my main computer and using a local installation of normal Google Chrome, as it has sync support built-in (although I have not managed to get it working for some reason).
Anyway, I have noticed a problem when I make Google Chrome Portable the default web browser. It's obviously not making the portable launcher the default browser, so it opens the executable directly, so I do not get any of my settings and extensions from my usual profile.
So, what are the registry keys that needs to be edited to point to the portable launcher?
And, where are the files for this other profile that is being used when chrome.exe is being run directly, so I can delete them? I thought that they might be in %APPDATA%, but I cannot find them.
