Not with Directory[] / SetDirectory[], as I recall, but it seems pretty
much a crapshoot which directory the "open" dialog will go looking in.

Other problems? Yeah, you could say that: exceptionally unstable,
imbedded, invisible, @$$!%#$# characters all over the %^$^&%& place!, and
it's an obvious blind port from a Macintosh. Mind you, I'm an unabashed
Mac bigot, but when I'm sitting at a Sparc, I want the %$^&%$^* copy and
paste keys to work. Delete and backspace should also both work...or at the
very minimum they should do no harm.
