Oh, they do care where Emacs is started from the command line. How else can they get Emacs to automatically read saved desktops?

You're suggesting a user-level feature (a new command line arg) based on
some obscure internal detail.  That doesn't make much sense unless
there's no other way to get the user-level behavior you want.

I didn't think automatic loading of desktops and getting the right default-direcotry was obscure.

The --chdir is not enough to restore the default-directory of all the
buffers either.   So if you want to preserve that info, then add
`default-directory' to desktop-locals-to-save rather than try to get
that same result in a round about way by adding a new vaguely related
feature which doesn't quite do what we want anyway.

No, if I have done a cd in some buffer, it is not enough. But for all other uses, it is. How will desktop-locals-to-save restore the default-directory if I don't use desktop.el?

Where else should Emacs be restarted?

Doesn't matter as long as the end result is the one we want.
Usually I'd expect $HOME to be a good choice.

And how will Emacs avoid to load my desktop file there if I didn't use it previously?
