This is strange.
I tried this, with /tmp/project/R/foo.R
but when I quit R (using C-c C-q; and having set
(inferior-R-args "--no-restore-history --no-save ")
in my ~/.emacs equivalent, so I'm never asked about saving --
the only reasonable thing anyway!
and restart it , my working directory *is* the same,
Can anyone reproduce Paul's problem?
If not, Paul, you may have set another non-default somewhere.
