Description bitdancer 2009-02-03 21:18:15 UTC
In linux, when one executes a command, the expectation is that the command will
operate on files in the current directory.  However, if one starts an open
office interface, creates a file, and then does a 'save as', the dialog box
defaults to the home directory and not to the current directory.

Target set, reassigned, summary and Platform changed
I experienced similar problems on Windows Server 2008 R2 in DEV300 m88 both on
load and save as

The directory used on load and save as changes 'randomly' to a certain directory
which is then used for a number of operations. A change of the directory is
ignored. At some point in time the change of the directory _is_ accepted and
then _this_ directory is used.

set target to 3.x since not release relevant for 3.4 release.
