This doesn't seem to be true with the unix port. It passes the document 
name as given in the command line. I just tried:

  $ run images/SpurVMMaker.image ./dummy.st hello world

Here is what I see:
{SmalltalkImage current documentPath.
SmalltalkImage current vmPath.
SmalltalkImage current imagePath.
SmalltalkImage current imageName}

This could create problems because the relative path for the image and 
document could be different (as in this case).

If a script is used to launch the vm, the working directory of the same 
must be passed through the environment for resolving relative document 
path in the image.
