Creating a new user made no difference, of course. Same behavior –
launching via gnome3's activities or search starts the shell in the new
account's home directory. Copying gnome-terminal.desktop into ~/Desktop, and
launching it from the icon, launches the shell in /.
But I feel a little silly for overlooking the obvious fix: changing the
icon to execute:
sh -c "cd $HOME; gnome-terminal &"
Now, on to finding an explanation for systemd spinning its wheels, doing
absolutely nothing, for two minutes, on every boot…
