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.
