making link from Nautilus doesn't use the correct working directory
Status in nautilus package in Ubuntu:
Binary package hint: nautilus
When making a link from nautilus and using it from another folder
doesn't set the correct working folder.
Example steps to reproduce:
1) Find a file and make a link to it by right clicking in nautilus.
2) Move the link-file to desktop.
3) Double clicking runs the action, but it is not the correct working folder
The working folder should be where the file is, not, as in this
example, on desktop.
I use some programs that depend on being started in the folder where
data is. This is not a problem if there is only one data file, but it
is, when there are several files necessary such as an IDE.
