Thats why I did use the brackets () in my example command:
(cd <workingdir> ; ipy.exe mypy.py)

They spawn a subshell, so after the closing bracket, the original
directory is restored.

I think, you can achive similar effects by saving the working directory
(e. G. in a variable), or using pushd/popd.
