I hoped we got these bugs fixed already some time ago.
What libvte version do you use?

Weird. Geany should remember the last directory you changed to. It does
so here, that is Geany SVN on Debian Testing and I'm using also Geany
SVN on some Ubuntu 9.04 box. The code responsible for reading and
saving the last working directory of the VTE didn't change since 0.18,
so that shouldn't make a difference.

What shell did you configure to use?
