It seems that Thomas is right, your patch broke something. In the prompt
"D)ownload, or C)ancel" the "c" and "C" commands don't work anymore.
Commenting out "#define "SUPPORT_CHDIR" in userdefs.h, as suggested in the
CHANGES file, doesn't re-enable the commands above.

By the way, I think that it would be better to make clear that what the
command does is to change the _current_ directory by calling it "change
current directory" everywhere and by changing SUPPORT_CHDIR to something like
