Hi Elad,

it seems that this commit breaks the purpose of the inpath filter.

inpath is supposed to match the behavior of somebody doing "cd
..". So, if you start at pwd = /usr/home/elad

then inpath "/usr/home/elad" matches

  cd "/usr/home/elad"
  cd "/usr/home"
  cd "/usr"
  cd "/"

Please, revert your commit.
