I cannot reproduce this on my machine with Emacs 22.2: a .emacs with a
single line that sets default-directory works for me.  Can you tell me
what exactly made you to come to the conclusion that this line is
ignored?

And btw, do you really have "\/" after "D:"?  If so, you may wish to
try to remove the backslash: it's unneeded.

It does for me.
