[PD] new/open/saveas initialdir behavior in Pd-devel

Hey all,

I just worked out a new scheme for the initial directory for File ->  
New and File -> Open:

	- starts in pwd
	- is updated to the dir of the previous File -> Open

	- starts in pwd
	- updated on every File -> Save As to that dir
	- updated to path of current patch whenever focus changes
	- when Pd window gets focus, menu_new_dir is set to pwd

This means when you create a new window, it starts in the directory  
that you are currently working in, which is a huge improvement, IMHO.   



All mankind is of one author, and is one volume; when one man dies,  
one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better  
language; and every chapter must be so translated.... -John Donne
