Did not my message get through? My suggestion was when setting default-directory also set the working directory for the OS.

That's a scary suggestion.  For starters, it will have different
effects on Windows 9x and the newer versions (since cwd is a global OS
variable on Windows 9x).  It might also affect subprocesses and other
related aspects.  I don't think we should even think about going that

Do you mean that each process has the same working directory on Win 9x?

Does not each inferior process in Emacs has its own working directory? Is not this set from the value of default-directory when starting the process?

Like I said: let's postpone this for after the release.

Yes, this is a bit scary. I will do some tests on my own and tell the results, but that is all.
