On Windows, no matter what I set as the current directory, gVim will always set its initial working directory to
$home. (That is, if I launch gVim with the current directory at
C:\something, or if I set its starting directory to something on my desktop shortcut, vim will not honor this working directory.)

gvim file.txt, since it will always assume it's a new file to be created in the
Is this something wrong with my vim configuration, or is this default behavior? If it's the default behavior, is there a way to change it?
