Do you know if the differences are relegated to "cd",
or do other common commands such as awk, grep, sed, mktemp, expr,
etc. have similar issues?

I wonder if it'd be helpful to have a low-numbered test that checks
the basics needed by the scripted Porcelains and test suite.
It would give us an easy way to answer these questions, and could
be a good way to document (in code) the capabilities we expect.
