There's 2 issues. One is creating the path if what we have is relative.
In this situation CWD should be enough. But if the question is whether
the PARENT directory should be included...what if the PARENT
permissions do not allow the successful name resolution? In that case
we might only get a PARENT record no? In that case we would need it.
