#1644 Inserting audio CD changes directory

obsolete: 8.3.2

An external event (starting an audio CD) can unexpectedly change the current working
directory. Scenario:

Launch Wish 8.3.2 on Macintosh OS 8.5.1, Power PC G3
In Console window, do:
% pwd

Get something like:
<volume>:<partial path>:Tcl/Tk Folder 8.3.2:Build:

Start an audio CD.
In Console window, repeat:
% pwd

    The FS changes in 8.4a3/4 may well have changed the
    behaviour here. Worth testing just to see if that makes
    this minor issue go away.

    Can't reproduce this on Tcl 8.3.3 or 8.4 ( on MacOS 9.1 or
    9.2.1 ).

    This sounds similar to bug #463832 which occurs on OS 8.6 but
    not OS 9 or higher.

    I can't currently test on old versions of MacOS, a workaround
    would be to upgrade your OS...

    Closing the bug as worksforme.
