I just installed CommandT for Vim, and it works very well, but there's an annoying bug/problem.

It seems that CommandT would change my working dir to the file I just opened. e.g. when I reach /foo/bar1/1.txt , :pwd tells me the working directory is /foo/bar1. Then I cannot navigate to /foo/bar2 unless manually use :cd.

Don't know if this is due to CommandT or some other plugin. Anyone got an idea?

Include set noautochdir in your ~/.vimrc, and make sure that none of your other plugins has set autochdir enabled.
