Prospective remote support isn't a reason to leave it dodgy for locals
now is it?

The cd in tramp-handle-process-file will have the same problem as the
local cd in call-process.  If there has to be a cd then it should be a
safe place like the root dir or similar.

Perhaps default-directory as the remote root dir would get close.  Is
there a func to figure that?  Except I think remote support should go
through the file-name-handler thingie to allow for remotes with their
own free-space query mechanism, rather than running "df" (or assuming
that `directory-free-space-program' for the local machine is also good
on the remote, etc).
