Use $PWD as the fallback value for setting initial working directory
This means running "konsole" literally in a terminal will open a konsole which starts in the same directory as the current terminal. "konsole --workdir ." is no more needed. This makes Konsole behave like most other emulators. Another befinit is it is now easier to use konsole for the "Open terminal here" feature provided in file managers other than dolphin. Note: due to the "single process" model of konsole, konsole sometimes does not open the expected the direcotory when used by this "Open terminal here" feature.
