I'm using LyX on Mint (similar setup to Ehud, although I'm using 
Mint 18.3 rather than 19.3 and MATE rather than XFCE), and I confirm 
that when I start LyX by double-clicking a .lyx file, the LyX working 
directory is the directory where the file lives. I can't reproduce the 
problem with graphics paths, though. When I insert a graphic from 
outside the working directory, LyX records the absolute path in the .lyx
