Description Maxim Burgerhout 2009-04-15 10:37:56 EDT
Description of problem:
If a program is running with sudo in the first and only tab of gnome terminal, all further shells (in second tab and up) are spawned with / as the working directory.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open gnome-terminal
2. run program in gnome-terminal's first tab with sudo (say 'sudo visudo')
3. open second tab while 'sudo visudo' is still running
4. see that shells in tabs after the first one open in / instead of in the working directory of the first tab
Actual results:
shells in second and further tabs open with / as the working directory

Expected results:
second and further to spawn shells in working directory of the ordinary user in the first shell
