Are you using nautilus-open-terminal, the nautilus add-on that
provides a right-click "Open Terminal" shortcut?  If so, what does the
following command return?

$ gconftool-2 -R /apps/nautilus-open-terminal

Umm, it returns no text. But that's not the question. I'm running an 
xterm. Not a kterm or a gnome-terminal. Just a plain old xterm. It's the 
window manager (KDE) that thinks it's in the Documents directory. ZAnd it 
doesn't matter what terminal I run. They all start in Documents.
