I agree. I would suggest that eric set its working directory to match the
location of the currently active editing window. File dialogs and other tools
should start their operations at the working directory. Using the user's
home directory can't be very useful, and in a kde shell environment,
there is no control over  eric's working directory when starting eric, as the
desktop application links do not offer to start an application in a particular
working directory.
