Don't get this still. But if you want to traverse, you need to know where
you are, right? Or you could change the current directory each time the user
goes to a different directory and then use getcwd (man getcwd) to get the
pathname. But this is an awkward way to do it. I would still suggest that
you make sure the dialog box code keeps track of this.
