When using a [shell] object you'd really wanna run a script. Since  
it's a new shell that's opened each time you query it.

So when you do [cd /to/som/dir(/[shell] and then after wards to [pwd(/ 
[shell] then you'r no longer cd'ed to /to/some/dir but get the root  
dir. You can make a simple shell-script that both cd and pwd and then  
run that script. That is if you want to use a [shell] object.
