I tracked down the problem until the FExpand() call of the DOS library.
Instead of the full pathname, it always returns '/<filename>', so for
example FExpand('bug.pas') returns /bug.pas, while bug.pas is at the
directory of the executable.  

program bug;

uses DOS;

const BugStr = 'bug.pas';

var FExResult : PathStr;


On my PowerPC Linux it returns:
charlie at worm:~/fpcbug$ ./bug

(AFAIK should return /home/charlie/fpcbug/bug.pas)
