[squeak-dev] FileList and launching via indirect paths...

Hi All,

    if one launches an image via a path that includes .., e.g. you're in a
directory foo, a sibling of image, and you launch via squeak
../image/myimage.image, then when you open the FileList the current
directory won't be selected because the image path is ~me/foo/../image and
the FileList includes ~me/image but this doesn't match the image
path/current directory, and so isn't selected.

FileUrl includes the code for canonicalizing paths, e.g.

(Url absoluteFromFileNameOrUrlString: '../Squeak5.1/foo') pathForFile

Anyone see bad consequences if the initialization of the current directory
in the FileList were to use the above method?  i.e. does this work on
Windows with drive letters and/or drive names?
best, Eliot
