[Ifeffit] Athena - resetting working directory

Interestingly enough, on the Mac (OS X), I had the same problem at one 
point (directory resetting to root upon opening a second file), but it 
has been gone for a long while now.  Bruce didn't see my problem either 
so I assume it was something with software revision on my end.  One 
thing that I did change which timing wise might be a factor (but I 
don't really remember when the problem went away) is that I switched to 
perl 5.8 and updated all Perl/Tk etc. and related modules at that time. 
  If the problem isn't in Bruce's code, it may be in one of the perl 
modules he is using.  Perhaps a check of your perl/perl module versions 
would be a prudent thing to review?
