The default should be to use project's directory or directory of 
the main debug file, if defined, but I see that it's not doing 
that correctly.  That's a bug, which you can work around by 
setting the directory in Project Properties using Initial 
Director under the Debug tab.  We'll look into fixing this soon 
so the default does what it should.
