No, this is not correct. /bin/pwd will return the true path. The 'cd'
path (which may have followed symlinks) will be in environment variables:
11:57 sls at bonnie% cd /proj/irix6.5/isms/irix
11:57 sls at bonnie% echo $cwd
11:57 sls at bonnie% /bin/pwd
11:58 sls at bonnie%
Fortunately under irix autofs (as opposed to automount) does not have /tmp_mnt
embedded in the path.
