What folder were you working in when you create a new patch? What if
there are no other patches open? What if there are many patches open
in many different folders?
Before, on Mac OS X at least, it defaulted to "/". I've changed that
to "~", which I think is a lot more useful. Perhaps it could be like

- if other patches are open, then use the folder of the current top
why not do what a lot of other apps do and persistently store the
last-used-directory somewhere in the config, so that next time I open Pd,
Open is pointing to the same place as the last time I closed it?
-- while we're talking about open and save, is it possible to have
different default directories for [openpanel] vs for File->Open? (and for
[savepanel] vs File->Save, come to think of it
