probe#restore_vim_state clobbers per-tab working directory? #14

For some background, I started using vim tabs to separate projects that i am working (eg: tab A is for project Foo, in ~/git/foo, tab B contains windows for project Bar, in ~/git/bar). I set the working directory for each project using :tcd)

This works well, but I noticed that whenever I used probe, it would for some reason clobber the tab-specific working directory with the working directory of whatever tab I called :Probe from.

I think I tracked it down to this bit of code:

function! probe#restore_vim_state()
    cal s:restore_options()
    let @" = s:unnamed_register
    let @/ = s:last_pattern
    if s:orig_working_dir != ''
        exe printf('cd %s', s:orig_working_dir)

It uses cd, and i think ideally it should use tcd, although I don't actually know enough to say whether or not that would break anyone elses workflow...

Ok, I tried changing that call to use tcd instead, and it didn't fix it, so I'm not sure what's going on
