Running the 32 bit R.app GUI.

I start out with my Home directory as working directory.
I do a Change Working Directory to:  /Users/berendhasselman/Documents/ 

Then do an Open Document... (Cmd+O) or a Source File... (Shift+Cmd+O).
The open file dialog doesn't start in the current working directory  but
in /Users/berendhasselman/Documents/Programming/R/NonLinearEq.Test.

After navigating to the working directory and opening a file, and then  
doing another open file the open dialog hasn't remembered the previous  
directory. I have to navigate to the desired directory all over again.

I can't remember if this also happened with R2.9.2. Sorry about that.
