Windows input anyone?


Given the lack of a comprehensive test suite at this stage, I'd vote on
the side of least change right now. We know the existing mechanism
works, and as Martijn point out there is a workaround, plus as Tom
discusses this would only happen if people "cd" which in my book would
be bad programming form anyway.

+1 Doc bug for 8.2, feature request for 8.3, unless Windows bites.
