FileSet.setDir() actually tests the File so it does get accessed (if
not "used").

I came across it because in some rare cases VisualAge will run code in
a non-existent working directory. In these cases the tests will fail
because "." doesn't exist.

However, the real reason I thought it was worth posting was that
directories should always be relative to the build file. Even if
directory is not being used for much (yet?).
