[squeak-dev] Starting an image from SqueakConsole manipulates pwd

Isn't that intended? You have a large number of images somewhere on your disk but only a handful of VMs. From Squeak's perspective, the current working directory should be where that image is located, not the VM.

On all platforms, the default directory is the current directory, but
FileDirectory>>startUp is setting the default directory to that of the
image instead of current directory. The attached fix will cure the fault.

If this works, I will post a patch to Inbox tomorrow.
