The default is either the location of the main debug file (if one is 
defined) or the location of the project.  (And not the root of the 
project tree, as I think you are saying, although these may of course be 
the same in some cases)

The Source Browser is not the same thing as the source analyzer.  The 
latter is the engine that finds and analyzes your code.  It essentially 
starts in project files and traces down any imports using the defined 
PYTHONPATH (which can of course lead it to files that are not listed in 
the Project view).

I saw John also replied privately to get some more info so let's see 
what that turns up.
