don't start new shell when moving to new directory

Nautilus Terminal

Bug Description

When I move to a new directory, Nautilus Terminal starts a new shell in the terminal window, rooted at the new directory. The contents of the terminal window are cleared, which is unfortunate: I'd like to be able to scroll back to see the commands that I issued before. Instead of starting a new shell, I think Nautilus Terminal should simply issue a 'cd' command in the terminal window to change to the new directory.

For me this is close to a blocker bug.

In Dolphin, I would go into a folder, set off a long-running command (e.g. a gimp batch script on a 100 photos), then navigate into other folders while that runs. With nautilus terminal, this is impossible… (well, I can nohup, but it shouldn't be necessary)

You are right, it is a very annoying bug, but I haven't any solution for the moment... :(

To fix this issue we could temporay stock an in two files the history and the old current folder.

Don't you think ?
