At the same time, csh has another silly limit, as do all shells
that export $PWD. Even if they can pass the PATH_MAX border by
constructing $PWD without help from getcwd(), the large string
eventually overflows the environment due to the ARG_MAX limit,
and external commands fail to run after that with E2BIG errno.
