I am not sure if we really have a bug here. Without .octaverc, the
current dev version starts in the local directory when launched as
terminal session. The behavior of the GUI depends on the preferences of
the file browser but IMHO, the octave directory is the same as if
launched as terminal session.

What would be the expected behavior?
