Yes, I manually made your preferred change as below, and
that got rid of the extraneous output.  :-)

I'd prefer a more general fix, then.  Would an `unset CDPATH' near the
beginning of the script do the trick?

This is an easy enough fix to install, but why in the world would `cd

I think that is bash's behaviour.  If you do a "cd xyz" then it could
either search your CDPATH and find any directory that has "xyz"
in it, or it could go to ./xyz.  It echoes regardless to let you know
where you ended up.

If you put an explicit path, it doesn't echo, because you know
that your CDPATH wasn't searched.

It probably has something to do with the fact that that bit of
sanity.sh is executing a shell within a shell, so probably reads
my .bashrc or something like that.
