I tried every option in the Files / Default Directory preference. The 
behavior does not seem to change.

It doesn't seem to make any difference which file is selected in the 
editor at the time.

So I'd say it's always falling down.

Note that the directory in the Add Directory dialog is correct and 
changes according to the preference. It's where the Browse button takes 
me to that is failing consistently.

In my previous message I said it was taking me to the Desktop, actually 
it's taking me to the tree where it shows Desktop with My Documents, My 
Computer, and Network Places listed below it as well as all the junk on 
my desktop. The My Documents entry is the one that's highlighted.

I'll send a screenshot if it would help.

Right clicking in the vertical toolbar (which I've moved to the left 
side of the screen) with a list of all my project files and directories 
and clicking on Add Directory seems to give the exact same behavior.
