[Chicago] Weird Issue with Popen/chdir

Hi all,

I am trying to use Popen to run a script in a certain directory. I am using
the cwd argument.  I am on Mac OS 10.5/10.6

My test script is simply:
from subprocess import Popen, PIPE
p = popen("pwd", stdout=PIPE, shell=True, cwd="/etc")

and it outputs

The same thing happens with os.chdir
I google a bunch with no luck, anyone have any input?
