With the following settings, new panes appear to open in pwd -P instead of pwd. This is somewhat unintuitive (and annoying to hack around).

# Ubuntu 9.10

bind '"' split-window -v -c "#{pane_current_path}"
bind % split-window -h -c "#{pane_current_path}"

Current pane pwd: ~/dots
<split-window>
New Pane:/net/host/user/me/dots

Logical cwd is a shell construct and tmux has no access to it

Ah I see.

I'm not proficient enough in C to know/check this myself, but is getenv("PWD") too unstable to use for this? Or would it still refer to the server process in this context?

tmux has no access to environment variables from the child processes either.
