Sort of. You need to chdir() into the proper


should be:

chdirgroup(g->name, 0);

BUT NOTE! I did not review if the old directory needs to be
restored. And what should happen if changing the directory/restoring the
xover info fails.

The paranoid, untested (may be overkill though) replacement version is
(abort is not optimal, but better dead than wreaking havoc)

  int olddir = open(".", O_RDONLY|O_DIRECTORY);

  if (olddir < 0) abort(); /* better: log error and die or continue */
  if (!chdirgroup(g->name, 0)) abort(); /* dito */
  if (!getxover()) abort(); /* dito */
  if (fchdir(olddir) < 0) abort(); /* dito */
  if (close(olddir) < 0) abort(); /* dito */
