Relative paths misinterpreted as cmdline arguments

Description

When giving relative directories as cmdline arguments to mc, mc misinterprets them. Apparently the 2nd one is interpreted relative to the user's home, and the first one is interpreted relative to the second one - or something along these lines. Expected behavior, the behavior up until recently: both should be interpreted relative to the directory from which mc is started.

Probably related to #2783.

Examples:

cd /
mc bin
expected: /bin in the left panel, actual: ~/bin (the subdir under my home)

cd /home/egmont
mc . /etc
expected: /home/egmont and /etc, actual: /etc in both panels

cd /
mc etc sbin
expected: /etc and /sbin, actual: /sbin in both panels

cd /home/egmont
mc .. /usr/local/bin
expected: /home and /usr/local/bin, actual: /usr/local and /usr/local/bin
