Hmm, a bit late reply, but I wanted to comment anyway. 

The whole point of "open terminal here" is that the terminal would start
*with that directory as the current working dir on the shell* -
otherwise it is just pointless to have that on Nautilus menus. So if I
open ~/Pictures/photos/travel/ in nautilus and would choose the
fictional "open terminal here" shortcut it would open the terminal and
the shell working directory would be ~/Pictures/photos/travel/ .
