Description of problem:
See also http://bugs.debian.org/190941 for more details.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.for example, make a .lv file on /tmp that contains editor option ('-E'), which
is going to runs a malicious program.
2.runs lv to see some file on /tmp.
3.type 'v' to edit that file.
    

Actual Results:  lv is always trying to read current directory.


Expected Results:  I don't know correct fix, but it may be bad that lv is trying
to read .lv file on any directories.
