When I gvim a file from gnome,
gvim's working directory is always my home directory.
That is not what I want.
It is inconvenient for :vi , :r and :w something.else .
Is there a way to automatically cause gvim's current
directory to be the directory of the edited file?
I am aware of workarounds involving the command line.
I am aware of gedit.
I am looking for a way to give gvim the correct working directory.
Is this a gnome thing?
