For standard Python tools in Galaxy, I'm using os.path.split(sys.argv[0])[0]
to get the path, which on reflection probably should be written as
os.path.dirname(sys.argv[0]) as you suggest.

What do __file__ and sys.argv[0] give you? The simplest way to debug
this is to add a print statement, since Galaxy will show the stdout.
