What folder were you working in when you create a new patch?  What if  
there are no other patches open?  What if there are many patches open  
in many different folders?

Before, on Mac OS X at least, it defaulted to "/".  I've changed that  
to "~", which I think is a lot more useful.  Perhaps it could be like  

- if no other patches open, then "~".
- if other patches are open, then use the folder of the current top

As we enjoy great advantages from inventions of others, we should be  
glad of an opportunity to serve others by any invention of ours; and  
this we should do freely and generously.         - Benjamin Franklin
