Ugh, didn't the code author know about the caller() function? You don't need to pass all that crap into the function when you can extract it from the call stack.

I think my favorite part is when they don't check return calls from chdir, but check the return from 'pwd' by using eq on two lists. Man, that's hilarious. Heaven only knows what directory the outside code thinks you'll be in afterwards. Could someone slap these guys with the -d, -w, and -r test flags?
