I bound the command "terminator" to Super + T in the shortcut keys configuration.

This is nice and all except terminator starts with / as the current directory, not ~. How to change this?

You will need to update the shortcut to the following command:

terminator --working-directory=~

From the MAN page:

   --working-directory=DIR
          Set the terminal's working directory

Much appreciation, my good man. Read the manual, completely missed this :) –  Dmitriy Likhten Aug 31 '10 at 20:51

Run the command as

terminator --working-directory=~

instead of just

terminator
