Really?  I seriously doubt that: on GNU/Linux, *scratch*'s default
directory is the directory where you started Emacs.  And the same goes
for *calendar*.  (Of course, if you start it in your home directory,
then this is the same as HOME.)

Basically, I believe the Windows and Unix versions of Emacs behave the
same in this regard.
