Btw, this introduces a limit of 500 bytes of GNU systems too, where the size was
virtually unlimited before (I tested  with a 519 bytes cwd, worked before and
stopped working afterwards).

Just nitpicking, I don't think it's actually important. And IMO a proper fix
belongs upstream.

Which makes me realise: the bug has already been reported upstream:


(The proposed fix uses PATH_MAX, which I hesitated to mention, after realising
it isn't exactly prescribed by Posix and I don't know if one can rely on it
being defined in practice.)
