Yes, easily.

CWD is not fixed by definition. It's very easy to just have files in there
that ressembles bios images, and so they get used by accident. Xen
had some things like that for restoring saved images, and it happened
to me a lot of times. Things then just start to not work reliably, and
it takes some time for you to figure it out why. All because the
decision is implicit, rather than explicit.
