Add the ability to specify a variable startup directory setting, instead of a single static startup directory.

Use Case:
Set startup directory to be CWD of console that launched console/new tab or some static directory or home directory.

Motivation:
This is the default behavior of serveral Linux consoles (i.e. - gnome-terminal). First tab startup directory is home directory. Any additional tabs set startup directory equal to CWD of tab from which new tab is launched.

    +1 for wishing that a second tab started [or could start ] in the working directory of the current tab.

    Getting CWD of another process is not reliable on Windows (i.e. there is no supported way to get it). And with introduction of "Run tab as..." it got even less likely.
