Subject: [Caml-list] Unix.chdir and backtrace
Just a quick note to let everyone know that backtrace stops working
when your program uses Unix.chdir to change directory and argv[0] is a
relative pathname, like "./foo".  The output of strace shows it trying
to open ./foo and failing.  It might be a good idea to apply
realpath(3) to this path before the program runs.  Not a big deal, but
maybe I can save someone the half hour I spent tracking this down.
