I honestly wouldn't worry too much about chdir on Win32.  Most of the
servers out there (for Win32) do not do the chdir for you.  Our app uses the
Windows registry to find the correct directory simply because all of the
Win32 servers behave differently.  Unix, however, is a very different story.
All of the servers (that I am aware of), except for CERN, do the chdir.
