[slime-devel] Slime and the default pathname basic question

Hi everybody

i have some basic slime/lisp question.

Normally if i start lisp from the command line in a particular
directory, this directory is set as the default path in the lisp
interpreter. So i can load any other file in the same directory simple
by (load "filename").

In emacs slime, as soon as i start the slime-mode the default path is
set to my linux home directory (i checked it in

So my question is, what is the most straightforward method to set up
slime (or lisp, or my lisp file) in such a way, that the default path
is set to the currently loaded file?

Many thanks
