I am not convinced yet.  Think about typical scenarios where one
thread creates tasks and hands them off to another thread. These will
break if every thread has its own idea of current dir.  If you use
absolute pathnames you do not need a local current dir.  This change
might even break existing code.  I believe we should at least
carefully evaluate consequences.

Kind regards
