#1172 Change in project does not change current dir Find in files


When a project is closed and another project with the same name is loaded from a different directory - e.g. a copy of the project brought under CVS control - the working directory for the function "Find in files" keeps pointing to the working directory of the closed project. If the user does not notice the old directory path shown in the GUI, confusion starts, since search without manual change of the working directory will keep providing results from the closed project.

"Symptoms" as seen by the user:
1. TeXnicCenter suddenly volunteers to open the old project with the same name (works as designed)
2. Changes made in a source with an identical name as in the new project, do not result in corresponding changes shown in Yap after a rebuild of the new
project. (works as designed)

Request setting automatic change of working directory to the directory of the last opened project for function "Find in files"
