You need to set `current-load-relative-directory' instead of

I see that DrScheme initializes the `current-load-relative-directory'
parameter in the same way as the `current-directory' parameter.
Probably it should be set to #f after the definitions windows is
evaluated, but we'll have to look into it more.
