I'm not terribly inclined to spend much time on this one: trying to
run anything in a directory that doesn't exist is a bad idea to begin
with.   We could improve the error message a little bit to something

"You are trying to walk over the edge of a cliff and haven't noticed
there is no ground below you.  You are about to experience gravity".

But that's about it, I think.  Pull request welcome.

No idea either.

Ok, this one is bad, and fortunately easy to fix.  Let me know if this
is not sufficient:
