The problem was the user had cd aliased to something else.

Other suggestions:

 1 - Check for PATH too long.

2 - Search Google.

3 - check to see that there's no file called cd in his working directory and
that . is in his path

4 - Increase the default word length in tcsh source and recompile
(default=1000 characters).

Thanks again

Hi Managers:
                       Solaris 8, CDE, tcsh, one of our users, after working
in a window for a while, when cd'ing, getting the message "Word too long.".
Example follows:

whitney] psycho:>
[whitney] psycho:> cd
Word too long.

Has anyone run into this?  I will summarize.
