ISTM, the start directory needs to be a configuration option.  The problem is that most users start IDLE using an icon rather than from the command-line (the latter is already challenging on Windows because they would have to put Python on the PATH just to launch IDLE and if they've already found and changed to the executable directly, it is a unfair further burden to now have to specify a different directory where their py files will be parked).
