Wow! This is really cool. Thanks for your effort.
(Also I learned today that I can just copy the command, up to now I always
dequoted the commands when rerunning it for debugging as I assumed I had to)

Heh. Would appending  "; cd -" solve the issue? (Though I would argue
we don't need or want to add that actually, as you'd want to copy and run
the command and surely want to run more tests in that directory afterwards.
I mean you're debugging, right?)
