Description lrc 1999-10-22 21:11:42 UTC
Running Enlightenment/Gnome when I call up a terminal
by doing a right-click on the background, new, terminal
it comes up in the directory .gnome-desktop
[lrc@lrcpc4 .gnome-desktop]$

Since there is nothing of interest or importance here,
this is very annoying.  I have not been able to track
down where this gets set.

I did devise a kludgey workaround by appending the cd
command to the end of /etc/bashrc, so that when
a new terminal is spawned, it comes up in my home directory,
where I would expect it to.

Onc could argue that it should come up in the directory
from which I ran startx, but I haven't figured that
one out yet.

The gnome-terminal that ships with 6.1 does not show this behaviour. When right
clicking the root window and choosing NEW->Terminal, it comes up properly in the
current user's home directory.
