Don't rely on os.getcwd() returning anything sensible, also don't
rely on being able to use os.chdir(). The general rule is that no
Apache handler should change the working directory or rely on
the current working directory being set to a particular value. This
is because if they did, they would all interfere with each other.
The problem is made much worse if a multithreaded Apache MPM
is being used as you can't even guarantee that if you change the
working directory at the start of a handler that it will stay that
way for the length of time the handler is executing.
