The chdir_spec warnings are to do with block-less calls to chdir within a
block attached to another call to chdir.  


The following code does not raise a warning...


irb(main):001:0> Dir.chdir("c:\\Windows") do

irb(main):002:1*   puts Dir.pwd

irb(main):003:1>   Dir.chdir("System32") do

irb(main):004:2*      puts Dir.pwd

irb(main):005:2>   end

irb(main):006:1>   puts Dir.pwd

irb(main):007:1> end




=> nil


But this code does...


irb(main):008:0> Dir.chdir("c:\\Windows") do

irb(main):009:1*   puts Dir.pwd

irb(main):010:1>   Dir.chdir("System32")

irb(main):011:1>   puts Dir.pwd

irb(main):012:1> end


(irb):10: warning: conflicting chdir during another chdir block


=> nil


It appears that the spec_runner is setting up a chdir block and that the
chdir_spec is changing the directory explicitly (as you would expect) and
Ruby gives a warning since, once the block exits, this new directory will be
changed back to the one before the block began.


Nothing to worry about, I think.
