Patch applied as 0cdaaaa.

I think matching the CPython behaviour here is pretty critical,
especially since it is also a security issue.

I committed the patch using '.' as  the current directory; if anyone
(Dino?) needs the fully resolved path as well, it's easy enough to add
back, but as CPython doesn't add it I'd prefer not to. I do wonder why
CPython uses '' as the current directory though; maybe it's
special-cased somewhere in the import system? IronPython should
probably match that behaviour as well.
