Description of problem:

OK, that's the classic subshell pushd/popd approach - I don't any reason why it shouldn't work. It's advantage is it being usable should once a loop be introduced around the pushd/popd, it's downside it the subshell having its price.
An alternative would be the "save pwd" approach.
This would avoid the subshell and therefore is somewhat less expensive, but it would not be suitable for "loops".
AFAIS, ATM the latter alternative would suffice.
Urgh, this was badly phrased, I was referring to "recursive loops", not "flat loops".
