      In my case, ticking or unticking the box had no effect until I closed
      all currently opened files and started anew. I admit that the option
      is buggy. I personally have it unticked because I like going back to
      the directory of the active file; however, this doesn't work too well:
      once in a while, it doesn't go to the right directory, but to the
      previous one it had opened; ignoring the directory of the currently
      active document.

      I don't use the option ticked, but I can imagine it being buggy that
      way too. Perhaps we should file a bug report.


      Early bird may get the worm.. but the second mouse gets the cheese.
