That snippet came form me. I've noticed that the dirname call seems to be
superfluous in a TeXShop engine but habits from writing shell scripts and
especially for Dropscripts creep in all the time. I guess I'd say that it
also doesn't hurt; except for the few milliseconds it takes to execute.

Good Luck,
