I don't have any PERL-fu, so forgive my ignorance here... At the
moment, I only see that one failure, so it may not be as bad as it

Before this executes:

    $dir = catdir($base,$dir) unless isabsolute($dir);

It seems $base is <empty>. Would it be possible to fallback to $PWD if
$base is <empty>? Does it make sense for $base to be empty?
