Does it actually do that? From my tests, it seemed more broken:

% mkdir foo
% touch foo/{one,two}
% comp
What now? attach foo
What now? list
Nmh-Attachment: /home/opk/one
Nmh-Attachment: /home/opk/two

The files are actually /home/opk/foo/one etc. This occurs because of the
use of ls: ls isn't prefixing the current directory so presumably that's
done by nmh.
