Seems to me it's executing it, but it seems to be executing in a child
shell so it returns you back to the parent's directory.

This works though
# .bashrc
	cd $*

You have to get used to typing cwd though; if you name your function "cd"
then you will get an infinite loop--someone here may know how to get
around your alias problem though.
