Whatever happened to the suggestion of prefixing every pathname with a
sequence of "../" as necessary to make them relative to the original
working directory?  (And of course removing any redundant bits.)  Then
"." would be unambiguously the root if the command was executed in the
root, and if you were somewhere else the root would be "../../.." or
something like that.
