    Resolution: Fixed

tested that this works with latest code.

> Filenames in the logical plan are not absolute

>                 Key: PIG-15
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PIG-15
>             Project: Pig
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: impl
>            Reporter: Olga Natkovich
> Lets say my current working dir (CWD) is /user/x and there exists a file 'a';
> The following results in an error:
> a = load 'a';
> cd /
> dump a;
> The problem is that the logical plan does not have fully qualified name for 
> 'a' and it is converted only when the
> physical plan compilation is done. So in between if someone changes the 
> directory as above we have a problem.
> As a user I do not worry/know about the side effects of pig's choice to 
> execute queries lazily. So when I asked it to
> load 'a' I made sure that I was in the right directory. I think that the file 
> is loaded and I change the directory. Now
> when the dump is asked for, the compilation starts and all it does to qualify 
> the filename is to get the CWD and append
> it with the filename if its not absolute already. Hence the problem.
> One solution is to store the FQFN while parsing the query. Since there might 
> users of just the logical plan like
> pigbody, I think the logical plan should support this.
