Thanks for the report.  However, because you used 'pwd' instead
of '/bin/pwd', you probably got your shell's builtin version instead
of the coreutils executable.  Coreutils does not have this bug, so I
recommend reporting it to the shell's bug list instead.  To prove
whether it was your shell, see if 'pwd --version' is recognized;
coreutils' pwd will respond with a version number instead of
an error message.
