"cd" _does_ work with [shell]


when you send a command to [shell], it will create a new instance of 
shell (rooted at "/"), execute the script and quit.
if you send another command to [shell], it will create another new 
instance of shell (again, rooted at "/"), execute the script and quit.

so if you send "cd /tmp" to [shell], it will change (from "/") into the 
directory "/tmp" and quit.
if you then send "ls" to [shell], it will list the contents of the 
current directory ("/").

for a solution read x's mail (put "cd" into the scrip)
