No, I tested it (exclusively) on NT, and NT definitely does remember the
directory changes between lines. I think under all versions of windows
even sub-shells (i.e. .bat files) affect the parent environment (which is
very crappo, but Windows users weem happy with it. Duh). 

Looks like the & syntax was an attempt to fix this problem, without really
fixing it properly.
