You are using relative paths and so the oerder is very important. If you cwd to 'a\b\c\d\' and then to '1\2\3\' it is the same as doing a cwd to 'a\b\c\d\1\2\3\' at the first place. If you first cwd to '1\2\3\' and then to 'a\b\c\d\', then is is the same to do at once a cwd to '1\2\3\a\b\c\d\'. All those path a relative to the current directory, including the one you have when starting the connection (use pwd to know the current directory).
