Cuts both ways; next time I hit ^\ to make it core-dump and it does
not work because it chdir'ed to slash... I will then have to edit
the source to fix this. In general programs should not do unexpected
things; you can alias top to 'cd / && /usr/bin/top' in your own
environment. Please don't impose this to everyone. We all strive for
less complexity and magic.
