But it's quite confusing that pwd shows that one is on the Desktop level while tab completion suggests that one is on the level of the file from which the shell was opened.

Well, that is not right, indeed.

However... you're saying that this occurs only when the above code is in Preferences.el?

Could you please give us a list of step-by-step instructions, starting with "Start Aquamacs without customizations" from the "Help/Diagnose and Report Bug" menu.   You must then show that the problem does not occur.  Then, execute the Preferences.el file by loading it, and typing M-x eval-buffer RET.  Then, show that the problem occurs.

Needless to say, I can't reproduce it just yet (not in Aquamacs 3.x anyway)!
