In 2.0rc2, git-gui is unable to work inside submodules, where 1.9.2
did not show such a problem:

yann@home:~$ cd /tmp/
yann@home:tmp$ mkdir foo
yann@home:tmp$ cd foo/
yann@home:foo$ git init
Initialized empty Git repository in /tmp/foo/.git/
yann@home:foo (master)$ git submodule add 
git:// debian

Initial commit

Changes to be committed:
  (use "git rm --cached <file>..." to unstage)

        new file:   .gitmodules
        new file:   debian

yann@home:foo (master)$ (cd debian/ && git gui)
[errors out after showing the following error dialog]

| No working directory ../../../debian:
| couldn't change working directory
| to "../../../debian": no such file or
| directory

strace shows the failing chdir call is from git-gui itself, after
getcwd() told him that it is in the dir that is indeed the workdir
