bug#15607: default-directory set to / when launch from Mac OS Dock

Hello.

I've checked 24.3 and 10.7/10.8:

open Emacs.app --args -Q  => /
open Emacs.app                  => $HOME
From Dock                           => $HOME

So dock starting at / must be a local thing.  Check your .emacs and environment 
set by launchd.

The -Q behaviour may very well be NS-specific, but it isn't new.
I see no bug here, closing.
