"rmdir `pwd`" is required to fail (at least under csh, bash, ksh) if the
path component contains a white space and thereof it can't be a valid
replacement for Andreas "rmdir ." which was what Al initially suggested.

Yes, I'm very pickey about that; but hey, I don't want to force anyone
to write GNU/Linux like rms; just valid shell code. :)

I hope you now agree that "rmdir `pwd`" makes not much sense - except in
bug reports for bash, csh and ksh scripts or in scripts dedicated to
the Win32 environment :)
