No it doesn't. If the startup directory option is set in the GUI, and
the user then runs terminal mode octave (not octave-cli), the
interpreter changes to the startup directory of the GUI. That seems like
a bug to me, because it's unexpected and there is no way to configure it
or check it when the GUI is not running.
