May be its not a bug, perhaps its me, doing something wrong, or may be I
lack some files. I'm just a newbie to tcl, but I am a so called "power
user" of Macintosh for ten years; I also do have programming experience
in different languages including C, and little Unix experience.
When using pwd, it returns the current directory name (as it should do).
When I use cd to change this directory, whatever I try, pwd always
returns the same current directory name. Files can only be found if they
are in this directory, or when I enter the ful pathname to that
directory. TclTutor is also affected by it.
Obviously, when I type cd Marilyn:Monroe, I expect that Directory Monroe
on Disk Marilyn is my new current working directory
It's possible that the user requires a preceding : to indicate
the root level. A discussion of how Tcl handles filenames is
in the 'filename' documentation.

Verified that this works as expected in Mac 8.2.1 build.
