I built FreeCAD built from Git sources today (2014-06-14) on a 64-bit Debian Linux system.
I changed current working directories to a directory where I want to store FreeCAD files into.
I executed FreeCAD using a fully qualified path to it (without changing directories).
I clicked on "Create a new Empty document".
I selected the Part workbench.
At this point my filename is "Unamed : 1". I have not added any objects.
First thing I want to do is save that file. I clicked File menu then Save,
The dialog box I see displayed is not in the directory I was in when I invoked the executable, but in my home directory.
How do I get FreeCAD to use the current working directory at time of invocation instead of the HOME directory? The Files/Preferences did not show any way to specify this.
