Thanks, this is indeed a bug and I have reproduced it with a test
case. Your patch works, but I think it would be better to
separate the callers of chdir(): those that know they are
cd-ing to a path from a p4 client, and everybody else. The former
should not use os.getcwd(), as you show.
I'll whip something up soon, unless you beat me to it.
