With shell commands you have to explicitly state that you want to use the 
executable of the current directory. I think this security approach should 
also be taken here (think e.g. of the libs). Better add a parameter to state 
the explicit wish for the usage of the local settings. Adds some little 
burden, but so does "./", too. (no free lunch, isn't there ;)
