      Why would -N ever be needed when typing 'gvim'?

      -u NONE says to ignore my .vimrc
      but --cmd "set shellslash" says to execute that command before
      any .vimrc or .gvimrc.

      I made sure it was first in my .vimrc, since there was a
      set "set autochdir" about 3 lines in that could trigger a
      chdir I'd guess.

      So if shellslash was set first, ..

      Now I get... Ah ha... I figured out where it is executing
      I mistyped iotest as iotset and it came up
      saying there was a swap file C:\tmp/iotest

      Why is it in C:\tmp? (when I started in my home dir/profiledir).
