Comment (by mlennert):

 Replying to [ticket:3573 wenzeslaus]:
 > When user changes current working directory in GUI, saves workspace, and
 reopens the same workspace, everything is there (especially after we have
 #2604) but the current working directory is the system default.
 > The current working directory should be stored in the workspace and then
 applied when starting.
 > It is not clear to me if only the GUI work dir should be changed or if
 also the command line should be changed (if it is during startup, it
 should be possible to change it for command line as well - considering
 that we need to read the workspace file for #2604).

 I have to admin that I never even noticed that we had this option. I find
 this a bit weird, first of all because I don't know what the "current
 working directory" actually means in GRASS GIS ? In the GUI I understand
 it to mean the directory that is opened by default in any file system
 widgets. Does it have any other effect ?
