When I first open XTHE 3.3RC1 (compiled from source using PDCurses), I see a directory listing of files. I then immediately issue the command DIRECTORY and my settings change...
For instance, when I first open XTHE I have:

'NUMBER ON'
'SCALE OFF'

then I issue the first DIRECTORY COMMAND my settings change to

'NUMBER OFF'
'SCALE OFF'

(other settings may change too, these are just the most obvious).

    This was on Salix OS 13.37 (Linux x86_64, 64-bit)

    What switches did you invoke THE with?
    If you didn't execute a profile, that's weird! The defaults are NUM ON, SCALE OFF

    If you're looking at the default directory, why issue the DIRECTORY command? Do you have a DIRECTORY macro?

    My .therc contains the following:

    'SET COMPAT XEDIT THE THE'
    'SET SCALE OFF'
    'SET INSERTMODE ON'
    'SET NUMBER ON'
    'SET CLOCK ON'
    'SET TABKEY TAB TAB'

    I don't invoke THE with any switches...
    When invoked as "xthe" from the command prompt (with no arguments) the default is to display a directory listing. I am new to THE and just happened to issue the DIRECTORY command while looking at a directory listing and was surprised that my settings changed.

    I do not have a DIRECTORY macro.
