Even if I set the startup directory and start octave with "--no-gui" (no
.octaverc) the octave directory is set to the current one, ignoring the
startup dir. In gui mode, the startup dir in the preferences defines the
initial directory for the the file browser. The octave directory still
is the current one or the one set in .octaverc.
