Well, I don't think it is a "security feature", because applets cannot
do what an application can do. As I've said you can set a property in
the JVM (something like "java.currentPath"), actually the Ant build tool
surely uses that when it runs a new program- maybe you could post on
their mailing list... but I'm curious to know why Sun hasen't put a
changeCurrentDir in the System class ;)
