This isn't what was in my message, this is what was in your message
to the bug. And it won't work. In fact, looking at it harder, you
included the semantic changes I made, yet you are stuck on using
$PWD in both places, even though this breaks the whole deal.

Using $PWD in both -e scripts is broken. Plain and simple. It must
be $PWD in one and a directory level lower for the other. $PWD
cannot satisfy both of those conditions.
