I reported this too a little while ago and there was no
interest. But it is a pain when your cwd is a USB stick
that you want to umount. I've created a pull request
that fixes it:

But it's failing checks on 4 Ubuntu kitchensink/sk

This page shows the error message:

  No files were found with the provided path:
  regress/*.log regress/valgrind-out/. No artifacts
  will be uploaded.

Does anyone know if the tests can/should be altered to cope with
chdir / having been introduced?
